 We are getting noticed!

Recently on Keep Talking - The Film's Facebook page, alutiiqlanguage.org got recognized as a resource for learning Alutiiq. Click here to see a link to the Facebook page and read the post about learning Alutiiq in Spain. Alvaro, from Barcelona, has been studying Alutiiq at a distance and says: 

 

"...We are thrilled by the sounds of the words themselves and we enjoy getting to know their roots and meanings."
