Free and Open to the Public!

Haa Tóoch Lichéesh is filled with gratitude as we welcomes back Neelaatughaa Anna Clock as our instructor.

Neelaatughaa is of German descent on her matriline. Her fatherʼs people are Koyukon Athabascan of Kaltag, AK, and Eyak from the Prince William Sound. She works full time as a Native language teacher, teaching Lingít (Tlingit) and Denaakkʼe (Koyukon Athabascan). She loves to laugh, connect with friends, and eat. Her new favorite hobby is boxing and she practices Muay Thai in the evenings. She grew up in Seward, Alaska and now lives in Anchorage on the land of the Denaʼina people.

In this class, we will level-up in our abilities to understand, speak, and write in Lingít. We will study written speeches and recordings of fluent speakers, practice greeting each other and speaking from the heart, and hone our cultural and linguistic fluency for a long-term goal of respectful engagement with Elder speakers. Learners will work on a personal project as they are able during the week, and will review and share our work when we meet for class. We will work as a team to use the resources available to us and find our voices in the language. Gunalchéesh language revitalization partners Discovery Southeast and KTOO for continued support of this program. We appreciate you.
