“Nts’e doxt’ae? Yaghali ehlan du?”

This is a traditional greeting in my Athabascan language of Ahtna and Dena’ina. "How are all you doing?"

Sondra Shaginoff-Stuart suusat dilaen, Taltsiine Kooyooe Tiicutta ełaen, Ahtna Koht’aene Nay’dini’aa Na’ Paiute Pyramid Lake kayax tsinyaaden. Speaking in Ahtna Athabscan; my name is Sondra Shaginoff-Stuart I am from the Athabascan Ahtna Chickaloon Village Water clan and Paiute Pyramid Lake Fish-Eaters Tribes.

I am the Rural and Native Student Services Coordinator (RNSSC) for KPC. I work with Alaska Native, American Indian and rural students to assist with all processes of admissions for students. I serve as an advocate and transition liaison for students to build relationships with the students, tribes and corporations. Kenai Peninsula College is UAA on the Yaghanen (Kenai Peninsula, the good land in Dena’ina)! Check our partnership with UAA Native Student Services (NSS): .
