While we are all staying at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s important to keep your mind active and body moving. We enjoy cultural activities, like sewing boots, gloves and beadwork. Here is how to say “sew” in several of our Native languages:

  • Łanch’edalkoyh. (Benhti Kokhut’ana Kenaga’/Lower Tanana)
  • Q’on-Gidiłqon’. (Deg Xinag)
  • K’onoydełkon’. (Dinak’i/Upper Kuskokwim)
  • K’eekaih kwaii kat k’eechąąhkaii. (Dinjii Zhuh K’yaa/Gwich’in)
  • Nzhoo zhìt äʼnintlʼùʼ. (Hän)
  • Naach’inįįtl’u’. (Nee’aanèegn’/Upper Tanana)
