Radio Broadcast: Saving the Siletz Language

From http://linguistlist.org/issues/23/23-2525.html

Oregon Public Broadcasting recently aired a radio interview with Alfred 'Bud' Lane III about efforts to preserve the Athabaskan language of the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians (Siletz Tribal Language Project, http://www.siletzlanguage.org ). The interview focused on the Siletz Talking Dictionary, an online collection of recorded words and phrases (http://siletz.swarthmore.edu ), and on the role of technology in preserving endangered languages.

The interview is available at http://www.opb.org/thinkoutloud/shows/saving-siletz-language and can be either streamed or downloaded in mp3 format. The interview itself is about 13 minutes long, and it begins about 30 seconds into the segment.
