Kodiak Alutiiq Dictionary
We are pleased to share this online dictionary database in its early stages. It is a work in progress, and some spellings may be edited from how they currently appear. We are recording more words with Elders and still linking audio and visual files to some words. As we learn and grow our vocabulary so will this list forever be growing. We appreciate your patience.
