Executive Director of Cook Inlet Native Head Start, Ethan Petticrew, is happy about the new partnerships and pipeline for Yup'ik language immersion with the Anchorage School District, Alaska Native Heritage Center, Cook Inlet Tribal Council and Cook Inlet Native Head Start. 

However, Petticrew wants to recruit for other languages - notably Dena'ina Athabascan.  "We need two
