Crow Re-Record Collection

The Crow Language Consortium (CLC) has officially commenced another session of digitally recording native Crow speakers to improve and update the Crow Dictionary. These series of recordings began after the much-anticipated release of the Crow Dictionary Mobile App in November of 2020. We are honored to partner with St. Labre Schools for this crucial step in the Crow language project. We're thankful for their gracious donation of space that was used to set up private stations where speakers can record with linguists remotely. Even in these unprecedented times, we’re always seeking new ways to connect with the Crow community. 

Ute Mountain Ute Rapid Word Collection

The Ute Mountain Ute tribe, in partnership with the Language Conservancy, is currently hosting the second session of the Rapid Word Collection (RWC) event in Towaoc, CO to help preserve the Ute Mountain Ute language. The Ute language is one of many Indigenous languages that are highly endangered. Though usually in person, TLC has adapted the RWC method to take place virtually through Zoom meetings. We're very excited to collaborate with the Ute Mountain Ute tribe in this important first step in language revitalization

Virtual Lakota Language Weekend - New York

The Lakota Language Consortium is hosting the first Virtual Lakota Language Weekend of 2021 over the February 13-14 weekend. Registration filled quickly as Lakota learners demonstrated excitement for the chance to increase their Lakota speaking skills in this two-day intensive Lakota learning event. We're excited to have support from a New York City foundation for the fourth year to host the event for the Indigenous New York community.

"See, children have a marvelous learning capacity. A lot of adults say: 'I can’t learn it, I don’t know how they can learn another language.' But for heaven’s sake, all around the world we see children learning multiple languages! That’s what we’re counting on in this revitalization effort: the remarkable learning ability children have." - Janine Pease, founding president of Little Big Horn College.
