Hi Nicolas,

I am guessing that the languages will be in Alaska Native languages primarily, perhaps with some alternative translations in English.

My guess is that there will be a mix of oral stories with stories that are represented in images like totem poles.

Would you have some time on Sunday when we could meet? I can message you off-list to set up a time.

Hi Wikisourcers,

We in Cascadia Wikimedians have been contacted regarding the topic of Wikimedia resources that could be used to host materials related to Alaska Native Elder stories. I'm familiar with Wikisource largely from what I've heard about it. I've only made one edit. Is there an experienced Wikisourcer who might be available for me to meet with via IRC or Hangouts sometime, so that I can get familiar with the basics and provide appropriate guidance regarding the possibility of uploading Alaska Native Elder stories to Wikisource?




Great news !

I'm seasoned but probably not the best suited but I can help (via IRC and at least for the basics).
Some questions first, to help understand what we're talking about and how to best deal with it :
- In what language are these stories ?
- Is it books or oral literature ?

Cdlt, ~nicolas
