Coeur d'Alene team meets in Tucson

Three members of the Coeur d'Alene Tribe's Language Program - program manager Audra Vincent, and staff members Michelle Clark and Cheffrey Sailto - traveled to the U of A on August 1 and 2 to plan work on the Coeur d'Alene Online Language Resource Center (COLRC)'s next iteration, with funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities Documenting Endangered Languages (DEL) program . In addition to a variety of technical enhancements to the site, the team is collaborating with the American Indian Language Development Institute (AILDI) to develop and deliver workshops for the Coeur d'Alene and neighboring language communities on developing and using documentary materials for language teaching. AILDI program coordinator Alyce Sadongei and director Ofelia Zepeda hosted the meetings, which also included John Ivens (technical lead), Timothy Chartier (UA Linguistics undergraduate), Shannon Bischoff (co-PI, Purdue University Fort Wayne) and Amy Fountain (co-PI, UA).
