Tlingit, Haida dictionaries available online

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Sealaska Heritage Institute officials say Tlingit and Haida dictionaries are now available online.

Institute spokeswoman Kathy Dye said hard copy versions of the dictionaries were published in 2009. Dye said free PDF versions of the dictionaries were posted in April as part of an effort to revitalize the Alaska Native languages.

Officials say the dictionaries are the results of years of documentation with help from fluent elders.

Sealaska Heritage Institute is the nonprofit cultural and educational arm of Juneau-based Sealaska Corp., a regional Native corporation.
