"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world". Nelson Mandela
Holikachuk is the traditional language of the former village of the same name. In the 1960s, residents of Holikachuk moved to Grayling, where some speakers lived until very recently. Probably the last fluent speaker of Holikachuk, Wilson “Tiny” Deacon, passed away in 2012.
Holikachuk is an intermediary between Koyukon and Deg Xinag Athabascan. Although typologically more similar to Koyukon, the language was often in close contact with Deg Xinag, and many learned it as a second language.
