Media Body: In the March 31 issue of The Washington Post (on page A3!) Rober
E. Pierre has written a 1,500-word article headlined "Northwest Tribe
Struggles to Revive Its Language." The article features linguis
Timothy Montler's efforts on Klallam Language preservation/revival,
and cites other people who have been trained as cultural
specialists. (Klallam has only 3-4 fluent native speakers). This
article documents the discrimination faced by older generations, and
the current efforts in language preservation.

An on-line version of the article, available for free until around
April 13, may be found at:
