Society to Advance Indigenous Vernaculars of the United States (SAIVUS)
offers free, online language lessons for speakers of languages indigenous
to the United States (American Indian and Polynesian). Currently, we are
developing language lessons for Hawaiian (Polynesian), Lakota (Siouan),
Cherokee (Southern Iroquoian), and Plains Indian Sign Language. We are
looking to collaborate with individuals who are interested in writing
pedagogical materials (preferably linguists) for these languages or related
languages. We also publish research papers written on these languages
online. This project is for a good cause and it is a great CV enhancer.
Additionally, we are looking for native speakers of these languages to
submit sound files. Please email webmastersaivus.org for more information.

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics; Language Documentation; Text/Corpus Linguistics

Subject Language(s): Cherokee (chr)
                            Hawaiian (haw)
                            Lakota (lkt)
