This is more plausible. The Tlingit peoples live in coastal regions, SW parts of Yukon Territory and Alaska. That's not what I would have referred to as "Northwest Territories". And it's totally not related to the thread, which was clearly about Northwest Territories, not Yukon Territory. 

Can you point to information on Tlingit materials in Cyrillic script?

I wouldn't describe Tlingit as a Siberian language.  There are some old Cyrillic script Christian materials in Tlingit. The Canadian connections are in British Columbia and Yukon.
