The Breath of Life Archival Institute for Indigenous Languages
Washington, DC, June 13-24, 2011
Call for Applications

Come and be a participant or a mentor in the national Breath of Life
Archival Institute for Indigenous Languages.

Application Deadline: March 1, 2011

Sponsors:
Endangered Language Fund
National Anthropological Archives
National Museum of the American Indian
Library of Congress
Advocates for Indigenous California Language Survival

A two-week institute, funded by the Documenting Endangered Languages
program, will be held in Washington, D.C. this coming June. At this
hands-on set of workshops, teams of participants (Native American/First
Nations heritage language learners, teachers and activists) paired with
mentors (experts in linguistics who help guide the participants' work) will
explore the language resources in archives in the District of Columbia
area, particularly the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian
Institution’s National Anthropological Archive. Morning workshops on
linguistics, archival research and language revitalization will be held at
the National Museum of the American Indian. Visits to the archives will be
supplemented by lectures and workshops on linguistics, language teaching
and learning, and related topics. Participants and mentors will be staying
in the dorms at George Washington University, where they can network and
study together in the evenings. The institute will pay for participants’
rooms and provide breakfasts and lunches (dinner is on your own), and will
pay for transportation to and from Washington, D.C. (capped at $600). A
registration fee of $500 is requested for the two-week institute. Mentors
will not be charged a fee.

We will be accepting 40 participants and 20 or so mentors for this
institute. This is a great opportunity to find and learn how to utilize
archival materials as part of the reclamation, learning and teaching of
indigenous heritage languages, in the company of other like-minded people.
