Our April Native Word of the Month features students from the Native language class at Effie Kokrine Charter School introducing themselves and sharing a word or phrase in their Native language. We are so excited that students are using our Doyon Languages Online program to learn and earn credit! Check out what they are learning!

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, Dinjii Zhuh K’yaa (Gwich’in) and Hän, 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!
