Before the Alaska Federation of Natives Convention wrapped up in Anchorage last week, a handful of attendees made history. They watched as Governor Sean Parnell signed legislation making Alaska Native dialects -- like Unangam Tunuu -- official languages in the state. 

KUCB’s Lauren Rosenthal heard from two speakers of the Aleutian-Pribilof language who were there to witness the event.
