Keeping Language Alive

A story played on NWPR this morning about Yakama Elder Virginia Beavert, who at age 87 is teaching a course in the Sahaptin language while studying for a Ph.D. in linguistics at the University of Oregon. The online story includes a link to the audio. A Google image search will find you a lot of nice photographs of her.

Speaking of audio, we lately received an email from the state library, which is moving forward with its plan to have a statewide contract for online delivery of audio book. Meanwhile, however, you already have audiobooks available to you, through the North Olympic Library System. Just go to the public library in Port Angeles and get a library card (if you don't already have one), and then go to the catalog search page and choose "Download audio books". Log in with your library card.
