We are pleased to share our November 2019 Native words of the month in Holikachuk. This month, we feature a short conversation between Tristan Madros and Mary Deacon.

Tristan: Sits’ida’onh dant’anh? (What are you doing my friend?)


Mary: Gooqa yix ts’i ghisoł. (I’m walking to the store.)


Tristan: Koon ninagi’eł. (See you later.)
