Sharing the Dena'ina Language (3 of 3): Snowshoes
The Alaska Office of the Smithsonian’s Arctic Studies Center hosted the Dena’ina Language Institute in 2010 at the Living Our Cultures exhibit gallery located in the Anchorage Museum. Elders Helen Dick and Gladys Evanoff shared their knowledge about Dena'ina heritage objects in the Smithsonian collections, using the objects as tools to teach the Dena'ina Athabascan language. They worked with language learners, linguists and museum staff to script and record new language learning videos, including the three videos presented here. To learn more about the Dena'ina language go to the Dena'ina Qenaga website at http://qenaga.org/.
