The Language Conservancy works with schools and organizations on the Crow Indian Reservation in Montana to develop language revitalization solutions for the Crow (Apsáalooke) language. TLC has partnered with the native-led Crow Language Consortium to develop and publish resources for the Crow Language. These include the Crow Language Levels 1, 2, and 3 Textbooks and over half a dozen children’s books with more on the way. Work continues on the Crow Dictionary, already available online in draft.
TLC also assists with coordination of the Crow Summer Institute. This annual event provides teacher training aimed at improving language teaching capacity in schools, training a new generation of instructors for efforts like the Chickadee Lodge Immersion School, which now instructs 60 children, from Kindergarten through second grade. TLC continues to work with local Crow organizations to develop additional components key to building a thriving language infrastructure.
