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.
