Thank you to all of those who came out and honored their language!
The American Indian Language Development Institute (AILDI), the Coeur D’Alene Tribal Language Program and researchers from the University of Arizona Linguistics department and the Purdue University Ft. Wayne, held workshops this past September 2019 designed to: create awareness of the state of the Coeur D’ Alene language, promote language learning methodologies when there are no fluent speakers, and create community support for language work. The workshops were funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities under the Documenting Endangered Languages program (Award PD-261031-18).
