October 2013


Are you a Doyon shareholder who is interested in teaching or learning about your Native language?

Doyon Foundation’s Language Revitalization Program will be hosting a Where Are Your Keys (WAYK) language training facilitated by Evan Gardner. The training will focus on the process of creating a community of language teaching and learning experts. WAYK is a collection of techniques used for rapidly reaching proficiency in a target language. WAYK is a system for using any technique or method that works. The technique collection is constantly growing—every time the community discovers a new trick, which allows players to teach and learn faster, it is “contracted” or adopted through the learning community to allow other players to accelerate their learning even more.

The training will be held at the Alpine Lodge in Fairbanks, Alaska from November 5 – 8, 2013. Travel assistance is available to those who are located outside the Fairbanks area. Travel assistance will be awarded to those who apply and are selected after completing the assistance application and registration process. If interested, you can register online to attend this training and/or apply for travel assistance with this application.

Envisioning our people actively learning, using and teaching the language is the enduring intent of Doyon’s initiative to revitalize our languages.

PFDs have been distributed and the Pick. Click. Give. totals have been tallied. This year, 73 generous Alaskans donated a portion of their PFD to Doyon Foundation, giving a grand total of $5,905! That’s a slight increase over 2012’s Pick. Click. Give. total of $5,503.I PCG

“We are so appreciative of the individuals who chose to give a portion of their PFD to support student scholarships, and we are grateful to the Pick. Click. Give. organizers for allowing Doyon Foundation to be part of this groundbreaking program,” said Doris Miller, Foundation executive director.

Statewide, the Pick. Click. Give. campaign successfully increased the number of Alaskans who donated and the total amount that was given in 2013. More than 26,000 individuals gave nearly 42,000 gifts totaling more than $2.4 million.

The Foundation expects to participate in the 2014 Pick. Click. Give. campaign, and encourages Alaskans to consider supporting student scholarships when the 2014 PFD application period opens on January 1.
