Mark your calendars!

  The local Native Language Summit will be held on June 28th from 10 am  
to 6:00 pm (dinner included - hope for salmon!) and continuing on June  
29th from 9 am to 5 pm.

The Summit will take place in the Hupa Language Room located in the new  
cafeteria at Hoopa Elementary School - just past the highschool on  
Highway 96.


The agenda will include:

  • Tribal panels to showcase what each of the three local tribes  
(Hoopa, Karuk and Yurok) are doing in language restoration/preservation  
  • Elder Voices - to answer the question "How is the thinking process  
different between Indian language and English?
  • A showcase of successful language lessons and games to play in  
language classes
  • A Language teacher's panel to discuss what are their challenges and  
their recommendations to help them in their efforts to teach the  
  • Tribal specific language meetings
  • High school language students' voices - why is language important to  
them, what is helping them the most to learn the language, how can the  
school district or the tribes help to better support their language  
  • A discussion on tribal certification of language teachers
  • And a chance to develop a common vision for improving opportunities  
to learn language and to take language learning to a new level
