Twenty-three years ago, Kapniaq Lorena Williams and Taġġaq Lawrence Kaplan recorded a CD to teach the Iñupiaq language to interested learners. Today, their work is available as the most recent online course released through Doyon Languages Online.
Children and adults who want to learn how to converse in the Denaakk’e (Koyukon) language have a new opportunity: a brand new Doyon Languages Online course based on the work of the late Agnes Moore.
The language work of the late Ellen Frank lives on through a new Doyon Languages Online course featuring her lessons in Benhti Kokhut’ana Kenaga’ (Lower Tanana).
In 1997, Irene Solomon Arnold published language lessons for Dihthâad Xt’een Iin Aanděeg’ (Tanacross). Today, those lessons are available to an even larger audience through Doyon Languages Online.
Nee’aanèegn’ (Upper Tanana) language lessons developed by Elder and teacher Avis Sam, and originally published in 2000, are now available to all interested language learners through Doyon Languages Online, a project of Doyon Foundation.
