ReVision Alaska: Ayaprun

Loading...

Ayaprun Loddie Jones is a Yup’ik Elder and educator in Bethel, Alaska. She is the founder of one of the first Indigenous language immersion schools in Alaska. Ayaprun’s teaching career spans 50-years and she is reluctantly retiring this Spring. Our film follows her through her last semester of teaching. As we watch her interact with students, parents and teachers we learn about Ayaprun’s life, the importance of language revitalization and the struggle to get the Yup’ik immersion school started, its success and ongoing growth.

PRODUCED BY KATIE BASILE AND KYUK
