Nuu-chah-nulth Language Audio “Phrase Book”

Although the execution is not completely perfect, this premise is very strong http://www.nuuchahnulth.org/language/language.html. The basic idea is to offer both a written and audio dictionary (more like a phrase book) related to the language. I have heard that this effort was driven almost entirely by the Nuu-Chah-Nulth themselves. I will be carefully watching to see if there are further updates or releases and likely following up to find out more about this project. It may be of particular use to those folks in the class working on language preservation projects. And incidentally, the band’s newspaper, the Ha-Shilth-Sa, ¬†is a great little¬†piece of community journalism at work. You can check that out here: http://www.nuuchahnulth.org/tribal-council/hashilth.html
