In this Storyteller language profile, we have the honor to speak with Denaakk’e language advocate, teacher and learner, Susan Paskvan. Susan worked with the Yukon-Koyukuk School District for 19 years, retiring earlier this year as the Native language coordinator. Susan was previously a member of the Doyon Foundation staff and was also integral to the development of Doyon Languages Online. We invite you to watch or listen to Susan’s full profile.
