Many Alaskan languages have lots of help, from immersion schools and college degree programs for Yup’ik, to the University of Fairbanks’ Alaska Native Language Center and Alaska Native Language Archive with their recently updated map of Alaskan languages (with Native place names), to Guillaume Leduey and his work with Eyak.
