Hän

Hän is the Athabascan language spoken in Alaska at the village of Eagle and in Yukon Territory at Dawson.

Of the total Alaskan Hän population of about 50 people, perhaps 12 speak the language. A writing system was established in the 1970s, and considerable documentation has been carried out at the Alaska Native Language Center as well as at the Yukon Native Language Centre in Whitehorse.
