Cama'i - Hello

Welcome to the Naken-Natmen Project

The Kodiak Alutiiq language is severely threatened. Today there are just 33 fluent Native Alutiiq speakers remaining in the Kodiak region, with approximately 10 speakers actively working on language revitalization.

The Naken-Natmen project is an effort to engage language learners, speakers, and linguistic researchers in language revitalization by making language archives accessible.

This portal shares previous recordings of the Kodiak Alutiiq language.
