What is it?
Quizlet is an online learning tool that allows users to study and master content. We have put all the words in the Na-Cho Nyak Dun Northern Tutchone Dictionary online so anyone who wants to practice and learn them can. The Learn, Flashcards, Write and Test Functions are the best ways to study the words, and when you get better, you can try the Match and Gravity games for more practice. This is an excellent way for anyone to start learning the language, even school age kids!

Language can permeate every part of life in the community. It can be in the workplace, at home, in the car or the store, and it can be used for business, entertainment and everyday life. There is no doubt the language we use is influential in who we are and how we think. Currently, our Northern Tutchone language has fallen into disuse. We don’t use it because we don’t know it, and we don’t know it because there are no apparent benefits. To re-awaken the language, we have to teach it and make it a viable option, and then we have to follow that with the motivation to learn and use the language. What remains is how much we choose to use Northern Tutchone or English. FNNND is promoting the learning and use of language through several initiatives. These include:
- Instruction at the JV Clark School and the Daycare
- Adult language classes in the evenings
- The use of Northern Tutchone on printed materials and documents
- A Northern Tutchone Camp Phrase Mini Book
- Northern Tutchone Flashcards
- Online and Mobile Resources
