On each of the Yukon First Nations language resource pages, you can browse and search through many of the language lessons, literacy session and in‐service booklets, and story books that the Yukon Native Language Centre has assisted in producing over the past three decades. This page provides more information on how to use these digital resources—whether to find information that may be located in many different resources, or to view learning resources online, or to print learning resources, or to download learning resources for later use, even without an internet connection.
To help ensure that these learning resources can be used even when an internet connection is not available, each of the learning resources is freely available for download as a printable, searchable PDF document. All of these resources are being made available for non-commercial, information purposes only. To download an individual resource, click on the icon next to that item.
To help make it easier to find information in these resources, each language resource page contains a "live" preview window that allows you to search across all of the available documents. To look for a particular word or phrase, click inside the preview window, then press Ctrl-F (on Windows) or Command-F (⌘-F, on Mac). This will bring up a search box, where you can enter a word or phrase to find:
Once you've entered your search terms, press Enter, and all of the matching instances of your search term will be highlighted in the document. Use the arrow keys on the search box to move to the next or previous matches, or the 'X' to clear your search:
In most cases, searching a document should be able to locate any matching text that's written in English. Unfortunately, most documents aren't able to offer accurate search results for Yukon First Nations language words containing non-English letters or diacritics. Sometimes, words in Yukon First Nations languages will match when you leave out the diacritics, but that's not always the case. Although a solution may be found for this in the future, for the moment, you will likely get the best search results when looking for English search-terms and Yukon First Nations language words that only contain characters used in English.
All of the learning resources provided on the Yukon Native Language Centre website can be printed, both online and offline. To print a resource when online, click on its title, then click on the "Print" button in the preview window:
It is also possible to download individual resources and print them off-line later on. Once you have downloaded a learning resource, you can open it in a program that can display PDF documents (e.g., Adobe Reader or Preview), then select the "Print" option from the "File" menu.
One of the easiest ways to find out more about an individual learning resource is to view it online. To view a resource, click on its title, and you will be taken to an interactive preview of that document. Once you are done viewing the document, you can return to the list of language resources by clicking on the "Back" button in your web browser.
