In partnership with the Doyon Foundation, WAYK returns to the Fairbanks region to keep working with some of the many Athabascan languages in the interior. This four-week visit focuses on continued training for participants of past workshops, especially small group immersion sessions.
Following a two-week Gwich’in training, the language focus will shift to Lower Tanana for one week. The training will begin with a one-day No Pressure Refresher Workshop on January 16, 2016 (from 9 am-5 pm). This workshop will be focused on introducing/reviewing Techniques and immersion strategies for Lower Tanana speakers and learners from Fairbanks and neighboring Minto and Nenana, but the event is open to all–new Lower Tanana learners as well as other language learners in Fairbanks.
The initial workshop will be followed by daily sessions for small groups of Lower Tanana learners and speakers from January 17-21.
