Upper Inlet Lessons

The Upper Inlet dialect of Dena’ina has been spoken throughout the Upper Cook Inlet Basin, including the communities of Tyonek, Knik, and Eklutna.

These language lessons were adapted from lessons developed by the Yukon Native Language Centre and were recorded with Sava Stephan in Anchorage in February, 1999.

This project is based upon the book Upper Inlet Dena’ina Language Lessons by Sava Stephan and James Kari, published by the Dena’ina Language Program of the Alaska Native Heritage Center.
