A week-long Tlingit immersion project wrapped up earlier this month in Sitka (08-07-15). About 60 attendees ranging in age from 5 to 50 packed Mt. Edgecumbe High School’s Heritage Hall to learn and play in Tlingit. One activity was a Tlingit spelling bee. KCAW’s Sarah Gibson met the program organizer, Heather Powell, and sent this audio postcard.
