98th Annual Linguistic Society of America

The Language Conservancy was very proud to be a part of this year’s Linguistic Society Of America meeting in Denver. It was wonderful to gather with so many professionals and linguists working on indigenous languages. It was extra special to finally be in person again after the last few years.

TLC looks forward to working with LSA as it has over the last 15 years on new initiatives to support indigenous languages and building capacity and indigenous communities for more linguistic work.
