There are several resources available to support Kodiak Alutiiq language learners in practicing numbers:
Created through the Alutiiq Museum Language Program, sung to the tune of "Ten Little Indians," students can practice their numbers as they sing Qulen Alutiingcut. You can download a PDF of the lyrics or you can also watch and listen to the song being sung on the Alutiingcut Little Alutiiqs DVD available for purchase through the Alutiiq Museum Store, or as recorded for practice here.
Developed by the Alutiiq Museum Alutiiq Language Program, you can purchase a glossy poster of the Kodiak Alutiiq Numbers 1-10 at the Alutiiq Museum Store in Kodiak, or via their website.
