Our Peoples Voices

    This week’s segment was recorded at Yukon Native Language Centre at Whitehorse Ayamdigut Campus in April 2018. 


    Our storyteller is Professor James Crippin visiting Whitehorse and YNLC from the language centre of Simon Fraser University in Vancouver.


    For this Saturday, June 16 and Wednesday, June 20, 2018 renditions we broadcast the recording of Professor Crippin telling us a story in Tlingit and simultaneous teaching the amazing structure and grammar of that language.


    The story and demonstration of Professor Crippin are about a fictitious and very funny conversation between a Raven and a Deer.


    Our peoples Voices is an audio adaptation of HaáShagoon, a television program produced years ago by NNBY - Northern Native Broadcasting Yukon.

    In addition, students and speakers fluent in their respective aboriginal languages gathered at the Yukon Native Language Centre in Whitehorse at the Ayamdigut Campus for a Structure and Grammar Course on Athabaskan, Tlingit, Kaska, Vuntut and Han-Gwitchin and Tutchone languages in early March, 2018.
    During this time YNLC and NNBY / CHON-FM recorded 6 Yukon First Nation language presentations. Video and audio recordings were made of the aboriginal language speakers that were on site to contribute to the ongoing efforts of documentation and revitalization of Yukon Native languages through media promotion, resource development and access.
