Dallas Houghton – Son’ Hwkoldiixen (Star Learner)

Published July 2016

Dallas Houghton Star LearnerAhtna would like to recognize Dallas Houghton, son of Judy Houghton of Gakona, as the most recent Ahtna Language Learners’ Star Learner. Dallas’ hard work, dedication and desire to learn and share the language is inspiring.

Ahtna Language Learners (ALL) is a workshop led by Grant Rebne to empower Ahtna shareholder-owners of any age to learn the Ahtna languages.

The goal is to have representatives from every Ahtna community attend the workshops and spread the language throughout their home villages.

Grants says “Dallas ugheldze’ dit’aen!” (Dallas is doing great!”). We need more dedicated learners like Dallas.
