Saving Languages...

In yesterday's New York Times there was an interesting article about native languages, Its Native Tongue Facing Extinction, Arapaho Tribe Teaches the Young. Thanks to the American Indian Library Association (AILA) email list for pointing this one out.

Clicking around the AILA website's Other Resources page led us to another interesting web resource, American Native Press Archives and Sequoyah Research Center's Tribal Writers Digital Library.

There is so much out there...

  1. Did you know there's a version of Disney's Bambi dubbed in Arapaho? It's a great way to practice the language - would be nice to see more languages available in popular media to reach younger audiences. More here: http://www.colorado.edu/csilw/didyou.htm
