Weekly Announcements

  • As many of you know, James Kari received an Endowment grant to work on making hymns available in the native languages.

1915 hymnal links as of December 12

On December 9 Susan Paskvan and James Kari formatted two hymns from the 1915 Koyukon hymnal on Google Docs. These are now being used in language classes at Yukon-Koyukuk School District; some were sung by students during the YKSD Virtual Christmas Party on Dec. 14.

The hymns are transcribed in the Upper Koyukon writing system.  To view and listen to these go to:

Hark the Herald -- sung by Hilda Stevens, Mable Charlie, Sarah Silas, Geroge Edwin, and Bessie Barnabus

Come All Ye Faithful -- sung by Hilda Stevens and Mable Charlie

We will add more hymns to Google Docs from time to time. There are about 55 audio files by five Koyukon or Lower Tanana speakers singing 30 of the 36 hymns from 1915 hymnal. We will try to publish a new version of the hymnal during 2017. We thank the St. Matthews Endowment fund for supporting this 2015-2016 project.
