It’s that time of year, when people from all over are gathering (in person and virtually!) for the Doyon, Limited annual meeting and other events in Fairbanks! All of us here at Doyon Foundation are excited to welcome these visitors, and we’re happy to share this short video greeting friends in our different Native languages as our March Native Word of the Month!

For more Native words, view our archives on the Foundation website.

We also invite you to access free online language-learning lessons by signing up for Doyon Languages Online! We currently have lessons available for Benhti Kokhut’ana Kenaga’ (Lower Tanana), Denaakk’e (Koyukon), Holikachuk and Dinjii Zhuh K’yaa (Gwich’in), as well as a special set of Hän lessons based on the work of the late Isaac Juneby. All interested learners may sign up and access the courses at no charge – sign up today!
