About These Resources

This page provides links to digital copies of language lessons, literacy session booklets, and story books that have been prepared over the past thirty years by the Yukon Native Language Centre and Hän Elders and community members, including from Trʼondëk Hwëchʼin First Nation in the Yukon. The work of all contributors to these materials is gratefully acknowledged here.

Recognizing the importance for Yukon First Nations governments, Elders, advocates, learners, and teachers of Hän to have access to language resources, the Council of Yukon First Nations‘ Yukon Native Language Centre and Yukon Education‘s First Nations Programs and Partnerships Unit have worked together to provide the language materials below with assistance from Christopher Cox. These digital resources are available for use under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International License Creative Commons License.

It is hoped that they will provide additional support for all those interested in studying, learning, and teaching the Kaska language. To order printed copies of any of these resources from YNLC, please consult the current catalogue of publications.
