This week, we remember the life and legacy of Dr. Alan Boraas, who died Monday at the age of 72. Boraas taught at Kenai Peninsula College for 46 years, but his impact goes far beyond the campus. As an anthroplogist, he dedicated his career to preserving and promoting the native languages and cultural traditions of the Kenai Peninsula. We're joined this week with George Holley, Bill Holt and Dr. James Kari who worked with Boraas on language studies, most notably the 1991 book "A Dena'ina Legacy: K'tl'egh'i Sukdu: The Collected Writings of Peter Kalifornsky".
