TOTR: Language Evidence Strengthens link between Asia and Native Americans


Diana Gish/KMXT

On this week’s edition of Talk of the Rock:

The University of Alaska Fairbanks has just published a new book called "The Dene-Yeniseian Connection."

The book, which is a joint venture between the school’s Anthropology Department and the Native Language Center, offers new evidence about the existence of a Dene-Yeniseian language family. The findings could finally substantiate the long debated link between Asia and Native groups of North America.

Join KMXT’s Diana Gish as she discusses the book with one of its editor’s, Dr. James Kari, Professor Emeritus of linguistics with the Alaska Native Language Center.
