Integrating Tlingit

This page is designed to help students and followers of the class, Integrating Tlingit Language, which is designed to help educators increase their Tlingit fluency and integrate the Tlingit language into new and existing curricula.

The main texts we use is the Beginning Tlingit Workbook. Additional texts to consider are Haa Wsineix̱ Haa Yoo X̱ ʼatángi: Our Language Saved Us, Verbal Structure Handbook & Tlingitology Seminar by Dzéiwsh James Crippen, and the 575 Tlingit Verbs dissertation & 575 Tlingit Verbs: the Paradigms by Keri Eggleston.

Students should look at other Tlingit language resources, which can be found on the Resources tab of this website.
