Query:   Dear list,

I am currently teaching a first-year undergraduate seminar on Native
American languages. As part of the class, the students will be doing a
final written assignment and presentation. As one of the options for the
written assignment, I was hoping to have students adopt a particular
language and contact a Native American/First Nations group that speaks the
language and inquire about the language situation in that group and about
the existence and nature of any language revitalization programs they might
be using/have used.

My question to you all is, would this be a feasible project? Do you know
of groups who would be willing to participate in exchange for a little
exposure for their languge programs, and what might I or the class be able
to do in return? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Nicholas J. Pharris
