Description:

The paper relates that the article is based on an interview conducted with Chief Marie Smith Jones, the lone survivor of the Eyak culture and language which endured for 3000 years. The paper explains that Eyak managed to remain intact because the speakers lived in isolation for almost 3000 years. The paper relates that Eyak is not a linguistic isolate nor is it aligned with any modern language community but is related to the Athabascan language group. The paper also relates that every Athabascan language evolved from proto-Athabascan which originated in either Alaska or the Yukon Territories at about the time of Christ. The paper relates that it appears that about 1000 B.C., Eyak became autonomous from its links with proto-Athabascan.
