After mastering Alutiiq family and people terms, the next step to being able to introduce oneself is to learn how to use the verbs "to live" (et'aar-) and "to be born". Developed and used with the KHS Alutiiq Language class, this Personal Introductions PDF provides an orientation to these verbs and sample personal introduction phrases to develop understanding. As this presentation is intended for use within an immersion instruction setting (without English), we have included a phrase translation list below:
