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."

One of our guests for Morning Line, Angie Demma, highlighted Alutiiq language revitalization efforts that will be showcased on a film screening at the Anchorage Museum Thursday evening – it’s called Keep Talking.  The film follows four language learners over the course of five years as they journey toward learning their traditional language.  Angie mentions the positive effects of language learning efforts, as it has even been shown to reduce suicide attempts.
