A few speakers of the Ninilchik Russian dialect are still alive in 2008, including one married couple who continues to speak the language to each other. Their dialect of Russian (plus a few words borrowed from Alaska Native languages) was the primary language spoken in Ninilchik long past the purchase of Alaska by the US in 1896.
