Alphabet Chart

The original Heiltsuk Alphabet Chart was developed by the Heiltsuk Cultural Education Centre in 1986, with text by Dr John Rath and illustrations by Shirl Hall. Please click here to download a PDF of the chart. In June 2017, with support from the Remote Community Based Learning Fund, UBC students worked in collaboration with Heiltsuk speakers—both Elders and youth—to re-record the original audio files and make the Alphabet Chart available as an interactive, digital learning tool. As of September 2017, one interactive Alphabet Chart is live:
