Hulquminum Language Sites

This is a collection of websites devoted to preserving Hulquminum. Some are easier to use than others but I think they all serve a useful function – recording and preserving knowledge of the language. Although they are attached to school boards and a university, the material is produced by FN people and the sites seem like great reference tools. I know some of these voices.  This is sort of my answer to Craig Howe, “Cyberspace is No Place for Tribalism.”  It’s not a perfect way of doing things, but it’s effective to a point.
