Tlingit Language Camps
In 2003 the village received a Language Restoration Grant from the Administration for Native Americans. With this grant the Village Language Staff developed a community wide language restoration program. The curriculum created through the language restoration grant is currently being used as part of the training for local tour guides. Guides will be expected to incorporate as much Tlingit Language into their interpretive presentations as practicable.
We currently also have a three year Department of Education Alaska Native Education Program Grant (2006 - 2009) in place.
