Applications are due by November 15 for indigenous community researchers and
linguists who will be linguistic partners to the researchers to apply for the
2015 National Breath of Life Archival Institute
(http://nationalbreathoflife.org). The National Breath of Life Archival
Institute for Indigenous Languages is a two-week hands-on workshop that
promotes the revitalization of endangered languages. National Breath of Life
uniquely provides archival access for native language activists and scholars.
During the first two weeks of June 2015, approximately 40 native community
members from across the country will gather in the nation’s capital to analyze
documentation on their languages and cultures.

While partnering with a professional linguist, these community members from
North American indigenous endangered language communities navigate Smithsonian
and Library of Congress archives and collections, locate and acquire
documents, interpret writing systems, and transform archival materials into
practical lessons for language learning. Participants will have training in
fundamental linguistics and the use of archival documentation in the various
Smithsonian Archives and the Library of Congress.
