Yesterday, an ACLU press release came out about Yup’ik speakers getting language assistance in voting in Bethel, Alaska.

Bethel is a town about 340 miles (540┬ákm) west of Anchorage with a majority Native American population. Central Alaskan Yup’ik is an Eskimo-Aleut language spoken by up to 10,000 people in Alaska.

If interested in some Yup’ik grammar there’s a rather gritty .pdf version of “Yupik Eskimo Grammar” by Irene Reed and others available at eric.ed.gov

Downloads from eric.ed.gov often time out. If this happens reload or try again later.
