About this campaign

The Haayk Foundation is excited to unveil a new design which weaves together traditional Tsimshian formline and language. On a deep royal blue background, David Robert Boxley has created a rising sun design with Sm'algya̱x words below that translate to, "The sun has risen on our language." Taken together, this represents our shared efforts to revive our beautiful language and the fruit of those efforts that have already come. In partnership with Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska, and First Alaskans Institue, all the proceeds from this online fundraiser will go toward sending a delegation of Tsimshian, Haida, and Tlingit language activists to Aotearoa (New Zealand) for a cultural exchange, where we will be able to see and learn from the amazing work the Maori have done to save their beautiful language. We appreciate your continued support.

Dm aap’ag̱m goo la loom da na lip algya̱g̱m. We will remember what you've done for our language. Wayi wah!

The Haayk Foundation is a nonprofit organization located in Metlakatla, Alaska, whose primary goal is to save Sm'algya̱x, the endangered language of the Tsimshian people by creating a new generation of fluent speakers. Our funding comes from private donors and independent fundraising efforts. Those funds go toward providing a range of cultural and educational activities, including free Sm'algya̱x language classes, talking circles, community events and assisting other learners who share our goals.

Our inspiration comes from the pioneers of the Metlakatla on Annette Island, Alaska who set aside their differences, pulled together, and against many hardships and setbacks, succeeded in creating a new Ts'msyen community in Alaska. We will continue that pioneering spirit in an effort to preserve, revitalize, and promote our tribe's language, cultural history, and practices so that the “Haayk”, or “Spirit”, of the Tsimshian will shine brightly for generations to come.
