Tlingit Alphabet Flash Cards

It just became easier to learn the Northwest Native language Tlingit “tleeng iht” (one of the most phonemically complex languages in the world, famous for distinguishing between 20 k-like sounds and 6 ch-like sounds). The Sealaska Heritage Institute (which created the Dictionary of Tlingit) created about 50 alphabet flash cards digitally through Flash called “Let’s Learn Tlingit”, with funding from the Alaska Humanities Forum. Each slide has a sound files of both a Tlingit letter, and an word that begins with that letter, with illustrations by Native artist Crystal Worl. Hard copies of the flash cards with accompanying CDs are available for purchase, Sealaska donated copies to 15 Southeastern Alaskan language teachers.
