September 18, 2018

The Teslin Tlingit Council and Khàtìnas.àxh Community School Council have announced that the Teslin School has been renamed the Khàtìnas.àxh Community School. The school is named for the late Billy Fox, whose Tlingit name Khàtìnas.àxh means “A raven that can be heard a long time after he is gone. He still makes noise like an echo.” “We are proud to support Teslin Tlingit Council and the School Council in renaming the school in Teslin. Schools are an important space where students and community members should feel a sense of confidence and belonging,” said Yukon Premier Sandy Silver. “Renaming the school to Khàtìnas.àxh Community School honours both the language and culture of the people of Teslin and the history of the community.” Nation Talk
