NPR’s Weekend Edition ran a story titled “Ten Teens Study To Guard Their Native Language” by Jenny Brundin on Sunday, July 19, 2009. The following is the description from the NPR website:
Shoshone is one of many American Indian languages that is in danger of becoming extinct. But 10 Shoshone high school students from rural Idaho, Utah and Nevada hope to become future guardians of the language. This summer, they're spending six weeks at the University of Utah for the Shoshone Youth Language Apprenticeship Program.
