>>> Dear colleague,
>>> I am writing in my capacity as Curator of Linguistics at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History and it’s Recovering Voices initiative. 
>>> Under my direction, the Recovering Voices Initiative is carrying out a survey of language revitalization programs worldwide. As part of our efforts, we are asking revitalization practitioners to please share their experience with us. This research is the first of its kind, and we expect that it will yield insights that are of value to practitioners involved in language revitalization around the world. 
>>> If you are a revitalization practitioner, we would be most grateful if you would be willing to take a moment to tell us about the language you are working to revitalize, and about your efforts to do so. You can access the survey in various language versions:
>>> English: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LanguageRevitalization-Eng <https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LanguageRevitalization-Eng>. 
>>> Spanish: https://es.surveymonkey.com/r/RevitalizacionDeLenguas-Esp <https://es.surveymonkey.com/r/RevitalizacionDeLenguas-Esp>
>>> French: https://fr.surveymonkey.com/r/RevitalisationLinguistique-Fr <https://fr.surveymonkey.com/r/RevitalisationLinguistique-Fr>
>>> Portuguese: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LanguageRevitalization-Por <https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LanguageRevitalization-Por>
>>> Russian: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LanguageRevitalization-Rus <https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LanguageRevitalization-Rus>
>>> Chinese: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LanguageRevitalization-Chi <https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/LanguageRevitalization-Chi>
>>> To date, we have close to two hundred surveys filled out. However, we have significant gaps for Asian and African contexts, hence this outreach effort to you all. Please also share this call and relevant links with other language revitalization practitioners.  Should you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the project’s research assistant Rachel Vogel at vogelr at si.edu <mailto:vogelr at si.edu>. 
>>> With best regards,
>>> Gabriela
