I will try to start cross posting so that everyone will be in the loop. I certainly don't want to alienate anyone and we need all the help we can get. The main reason I started the facebook page for Tutelo-Saponi was because I had several people that wanted me to start one even though I have given out the information on how to sign up on the Siouan Linguistics List.
I also wanted to have some more interaction with other Tutelo-Saponi descendents so that we can begin utilizing the language in a more personal way. Mostly the page is about trying to translate that which we want to say in the language. Thanks to Dr. Rankin and David Kaufman I 've been attempting to re-tool the way I am attempting to learn the language. I want to also say thank you so very much to this lists creators and operators. If it were not for ya'll being here I wouldn't know or understand near as much about my people's language. Pi:lahuk

I study Tutelo and don't do facebook, so would be good to post Tutelo stuff from that here.

Don't sweat the small stuff. I'm just eager to make sure we don't spread ourselves out over more than one forum. My linguistics is already splattered out over too many web sites, listserves, etc., etc. I've avoided joining Facebook, Myspace, Linkedin, Researchgate and all the rest. They ask for personal information that I've been reluctant to get into. I don't suppose I have any business complaining, since I'm probably the only Siouanist other than Catherine with files in Moscow, Washington, Bucharest, Budapest, Belgrade and probably others dating from my work back in the '60s. I just can't keep track of as much as I used to be able to; 16 Siouan languages is a gracious plenty, thank you very much.

>I'm not sure what Q & A you're talking about, but I have been corresponding a bit with members of the Tutelo-Saponi group who have a page on Facebook and are not on the Siouan List (and most of them probably would not feel comfortable being part of an academic
list). I have been responding to their questions about the Tutelo language (which is similar to Biloxi). Other than this, I may have mentioned a few things regarding Kaw to Justin, whom I'm friends with on Facebook. I have not been intentionally doing Q
& A off the list in order not to involve other Siouanists - Facebook is a tool for communication and "friends" do tend to communicate back and forth on different topics, much of it not really appropriate for an academic list.

Therefore I would greatly appreciate it if you could post your questions and comments on this list so we can all join in. That is, after all, what it is for.
