Alutiit Atuutet: Alutiiq Songs of the Kodiak Archipelago 

 

We have provided a series of Alutiiq song lyrics for learners to learn and practice. The authors or translators and organizations who developed these songs or song lyrics are credited at the bottom of each lyric sheet. Quyanaasinaq to all the lyricists and Elders who contributed over the years to develop this growing collection of Alutiiq Songs and teaching them throughout the region. We plan to post recordings and videos for each song, to assist in learning the songs as this site grows.
