    Our Peoples Voices

    In this week’s episode of Our Peoples Voices we are visiting Northern Tutchone Territory in central Yukon.

    We are visiting Mrs. Mary Battaja of Mayo. Mrs. Battaja tells her story of being born in the old Indian village just down river from the present town site.

    She explains how she grew up with her family and that she was one of seven sisters. Mrs. Battaja also talks about the importance of her native language “Northern Tutchone” which she speaks fluently.

    In this episode Mrs. Battaja speaks in English and she continues to talk about herself becoming an ordained minister and how she used her faith to help her Northern Tutchone People

    Our peoples Voices is an audio adaptation of HaáShagoon, a television program produced years ago by NNBY - Northern Native Broadcasting Yukon. This segment will be-rebroadcast on the CHON-FM airwaves Wednesday's at 9:00am.

    Log on next Saturday morning for the next broadcast of material from our HaáShagoon archives.



    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.
