Indigenous Peoples’ Day 2018

I thought it would be appropriate to wrap up the week of Indigenous Peoples’ Day with a post on native knowledge.

The Alaska Native Knowledge Network (ANKN) is to serve as a resource for compiling and exchanging information related to Alaska Native knowledge systems and ways of knowing.  I wanted to share with you their website to explore and learn.

Also, I wanted to share this video that shows the importance of Tlingit language and its vital connection to the way of life.

This video was a collaboration between the University of Alaska Southeast Alaska Native Languages & Studies program and the Sealaska Heritage Institute.  (If it is not visible when the video starts, scroll over the video and Click on the “CC” at the bottom of the screen for a translation.)
