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 (CLC) to develop and publish resources for the Crow Language. These include the Crow Language Levels 1, 2, and 3 Textbooks and a dozen children’s books several of which have companion YouTube videos narrated by Crow speakers. More innovative books are currently on the way. All materials can be acquired in the CLC Bookstore.
An 11,000 entry, 872 page print dictionary will be available in June 2022. Online and mobile Crow dictionaries, first published in 2019, will be updated with new content in June 2022 as well.
TLC continues to work with local Crow organizations to develop additional components key to building a thriving language infrastructure such as an eLearning platform which will present conversational and grammatical language learning opportunities through hundreds of interactive units.
TLC also assists with the coordination of the Crow Summer Institute. This annual event provides teacher training and language learning opportunities.
