Lower Ahtna: See Ahtna

"Lower Ahtna" is the name of one of the four main dialects of the Ahtna language, an Athabaskan language of Alaska. The name "Lower Ahtna" does not imply anything lesser about the language or the people who speak it, but rather is a geographical term referring to the lower part of the Copper River, where the Ahtna people live.
