Breath of Life Archival Institute for Indigenous Languages
Washington, DC, June 10-21, 2013
The goal of the Breath of Life Institute is to help Native Americans involved in language revitalization find and make use of materials on their languages that are in the National Anthropological Archives and Library of Congress. Under the leadership of Lisa Conathan and Leanne Hinton, this two week workshop allows teams of participants (Native American heritage language learners, teachers and activists) paired with linguists (experts in linguistics who assist the participants in their research) to explore the language resources in archives in the District of Columbia area. Visits to the archives will be supplemented by lectures and workshops on linguistics, language teaching and learning, and related topics.
Applications are due on March 1, 2013.
