Cutest Tool Ever

Sealaska Heritage Institute is a trust established by Sealaska Corporation, a Native American and Alaska Native owned large business (primarily Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian). (You can read about their work here). They work to foster cultural and societal growth and health among Alaska Native and Native American peoples, including a rather comprehensive and remarkable set of language learning programs. I have the Tlingit one, and it is totally amazing.

So, to the point of this post. While googling "whale shaman" I somehow ran into the coolest page ever, a part of their on-line Tlingit curriculum - just watch it to the end, it's really short (only a few pages). You can see it here, as well as their resource page with other neat programs here.
