I think Cyrillic got into the thread by mistake.

Google ('Tlingit Cyrillic') does a better job than me! There's an
example linked to from the Wikipedia article 'Indication of the
Pathway into the Kingdom of Heaven'. I presume the original spelling
has been preserved.

There's an interesting account in 'Russian Orthodox Church Of Alaska And
The Aleutian Islands And Its Relation To Native American Traditions:
An Attempt At A Multicultural Society, 1794-1912' by Viacheslav
Vsevolodovich Ivanov. It's interesting that much of the action
happened under American rule - allegedly Orthodox Christianity did well
because it wasn't American!
