ReVision Alaska: The Juneau Sm’algyax Language Learners

Loading...

When the pandemic lockdowns began in Juneau, Shiggoap Alfie Price and a determined group of Sm’algya̱x (Tsimshian) language learners organized over zoom to continue teaching and learning their indigenous language. Now their learning community includes Tsimshian people from across Alaska and North America. Without institutional support, they are taking action to pass on Sm’algya̱x to the next generation.
