Our Guest today on Morning Line was Ronald Spatz, editor of the Alaska Quarterly Review.  He shared that Shaawatke’é’s Birth, a short film produced for Alaska Quarterly Review's 35th anniversary celebration, is now available on YouTube. 

"Shaawatke'é's Birth is the film version, in Tlingit and English, of a poem published Alaska Quarterly Review by Emily Wall and X'unei Lance Twitchell. "Shaawatke’é’s Birth" is about the birth of a Tlingit child as well as an origin story. It is ultimately a story about how important language is to sustaining a culture and cultural identity."
