Dena'ina Archiving, Training and Access (DATA)



This project is a collaborative effort with the Alaska Native Language Center (ANLC) , supported by a National Science Foundation grant (OPP-0326805). The goals are to digitize Dena'ina language legacy materials in the ANLC and to create the Qenaga website to enable Dena'ina community members to have online access to those materials. The project also provides training in linguistic fieldwork, and best practices in language data digitization and archiving to the Dena'ina community and to graduate students in linguistics.
