Welcome Jacob, 2021 Crow Language Consortium Summer Intern
I am Jacob, and I am an 18-year-old Crow man from Montana. I’ve spent the last four weeks at the Crow Language Consortium working on the dictionary...It should be every Crow’s responsibility to try and preserve our language because once the language is gone, it’s gone; dancing, hand games, and throwing tournaments are social events, and while those are still important our culture is so tied to language and it contains basic concepts that we can’t grasp in English, which means that to be Crow and to be in a Crow Mindset; language and cultural values must be our top priority.” - Jacob, Crow Language Consortium Summer Intern
