Court rules against Yup'ik as an historically written language
Fri, July 18, 2008
Posted in Alaska News, Top Stories
A Federal Judge has ruled that Yup'ik is not an historically written language.
The ruling is part of a lawsuit brought on by Yup'ik elders and tribes against
the State of Alaska and the City of Bethel. The ruling by Judge Timothy Burgess
could limit the kind of language assistance the state is required to provide.
