    Naaqisuutet - Books

    Once a learner has heard and practiced new vocabulary, learning to read and do an activity in Alutiiq is a good way to reinforce their language learning. Click on the Naaqisuutet - Books link above to see how to begin expanding your Alutiiq library. 



    Posters have been created to visually cue learners into speaking Alutiiq. They may be printed out and posted around the house, office, or classroom to bring Alutiiq language into your daily routines. Some of the posters that have been developed help learners perform basic conversation in Alutiiq, identify foods, colors, emotions, or items visible all around us on a daily basis. Click on "Posters" to access these printable PDF files and begin using these posters to help expand your Alutiiq vocabulary and conversational abilities.
