Yup'ik Language App

We are developing a Yup'ik Language App  focusing on the dialect in the Iliamna Lake region!

We are asking community members of the Iliamna Lake region to share what they think should be captured and recorded.

  • How do you want the Lake Iliamna region to be portrayed?
  • Do you have photos of people from the area, both current and historic?
  • What Yup'ik words or phrases should be included?
  • Do you have stories you would be willing to share?

Sheryl Wassillie is seeking community input. You can view progress on the 600 Yup'ik words and phrases that have been collected so far.  If you would like to share photos for this project, please fill out this Photo/Audio Release Form (Fillable PDF or Online Form with Esignature).

This new app by Thornton Media's will look and feel similar to the Yugtun App which is available through Google Play and the App Store for FREE.

We want this app to reflect what the people of the Iliamna Lake area believe is important!
