We are pleased to announce our new logo, created by UAF student Emily Kurpjuweit as part of a digital design class. The logo alludes to the well-known story of Raven stealing the sun. Recounted widely across many different Alaska Native languages, this story tells how Raven brought light to the world by stealing the sun in its beak.
Emily graduates from UAF this year. Congratulations!

A while back I mentioned the publication of several new dictionaries by Sealaska Heritage Institute. I'm now happy to report that SHI is making digital versions in PDF format available for free download.
Updates to the Alutiiq Dictionary have been posted at item SU972L2011. The updates are in a tagged lexical file format, consisting of three text files for main entries, postbases, and enclitcs. These are raw files which can be used to feed into lexical database software such as Toolbox, Fieldworks, or TshwaneLex. The files will eventually feed into production of a printed Alutiq dictionary as part of the IPY Documenting Alaskan and Neighboring Languages project.

Due to an extended maintenance period at ARSC access to digital files will be unavailable from 8:00 AM May 19 through 8:00 PM May 20 (all times Alaska daylight time). Our online catalog will still be accessible during this time.
