Itsy bitsy Alutiiq spider

Kodiak Natives' album effort to preserve dying languageOver five days last week, Sugpiaq singers with ties to every community on Kodiak Island came together to record songs. Not just childrens songs, but also Christian hymns sung in Alutiiq and Slavonic, and other songs native to Kodiak.

A CD from the sessions will be available for sale later in the year, and museum workers say demand from visitors already exists.
