Ninilchik Russian

Ninilchik Russian has been spoken continuously in the village of Ninilchik, Alaska, since its first permanent settlers arrived there in 1847. In 2022 there are less than ten speakers of this dialect left. At this website we celebrate their lives and the unique language heritage they have maintained.

We have completed some work on a dictionary of Ninilchik Russian but further work remains to be done. You can access the dictionary from the Dictionary link, above.  You can also listen to a few recordings of Ninilchik Russian from the Dictionary link.

Ninilchik is located on the west coast of the Kenai Peninsula. It is 100 air miles southwest of Anchorage, Alaska.
