The buttons above will allow you to download the videos as a file.
The links below will take you directly to the videos on YouTube.
This document is a spreadhsheet of all many animal names from all the Sim Algyax languages, including the Gitxsan, Nisga'a, and Tsimshian languages. If we can't find a word for the animal in our language, we can borrow from our neighbours.
