Mallory Story, Will Geiger, Andrew Williams and Richard Radford show respect for the people who have lived in Southeast Alaska since time immemorial by learning, and helping to perpetuate, the Tlingit language. Six months ago, the four started a free Tlingit workshop at Juneau’s downtown library.
“We’ve been given a lot of knowledge,” Story said. “We want to keep studying and share that knowledge.”
Radford, who has been learning Tlingit for two and a half years, said one of the main goals is to create a space where Tlingit is spoken.
