Our Peoples Voices

    In this week’s edition of Our Peoples Voice’s  we hear from Tommy McGinty from Pelly Crossing.

    Tommy tells us an Indian Bible story from way before the White Man came and coastal Indians tribes still traded with in-land people. They brought with them the foretelling of influences and effects of alcohol those people were already exposed to along the coast.

    This week’s rendition is Part #2 of a 2 part series that was recorded for the NNBY TV show HaáShagoon.

    The second part of the conversation with Tommy McGinty was recorded in his Northern Tutchone language in 1994 as well.

    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.
