Cyringit (Сірінгіт)

Cyringit is a way to write Tlingit with the Cyrillic script created by Marc Harder. After discovering that Tlingit used to be written in the script, and not finding much about it, he decided to make one himself.

We have only uncovered a tiny portion of the way our ancient people used to do things. How our grandfathers used to handle things is what we had given up, what you told us to look at. That is why we untied it. We had tried it, you see, our mothers’ grandfathers, our mothers’ maternal uncles, their culture, their language. We had given them up for ourselves. You have untied it for us. That is why we will open it again, this container of wisdom left in our hands.
