    The story must be the gospel. She says Jesus and Peter.

    I’m gonna guess tlingit (sp?)… though i really have no idea.

  4. David says:

    I’m just gonna take a wild guess and say Tsalagi (Cherokee)!

  5. David says:

    Damn! Just realised it was suppose to be in Alaska! Oh well :(

  6. Daydreamer says:

    I have no idea, but just because no one else mentioned it, I’d say “Yupik”.

  7. Guido R. says:

    It is the Athapascan language Gwich’in aka Kuchin or Loucheux.

  8. Simon says:

    Guido is right. The recording is part of a story told by Annie Lord of Old Crow, Yukon and called Dinjik Eenjit Nàhaazrì (The Moose Hunt). It is in Gwich’in, an Athapaskan language spoken in northern Yukon, northeast Alaska and in the northwest corner of the Northwest Territories.
