Learn the Yup’ik Alphabet
This video, presenting the Yup’ik alphabet, was created by a group of students (and teachers) at Ket’acik & Aapalluk Memorial School in Kwethluk, a village in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta.
Aaron Kennedy, a high school math teach says “The video is a product from a class that we are doing at our school called Yup’ik Digital Arts. Normally, our school district lets us teach a graphic arts class, but we decided to give a theme this year. Our school is implementing a new program, Dual Language. The high school participates by having Yup’ik day every other day. This means that during transitions and other free time that students and faculty should be attempting to speak in Yup’ik.”
