 *THE BREATH OF LIFE ARCHIVAL INSTITUTE FOR INDIGENOUS LANGUAGES*
*Washington, DC, June 13-24, 2011*
*CALL FOR APPLICATIONS*
*COME BE A PARTICIPANT OR A MENTOR IN THE NATIONAL BREATH OF LIFE ARCHIVAL
INSTITUTE FOR INDIGENOUS LANGUAGES*

>>>Application Deadline: March 1, 2011<<<
Sponsors: Endangered Language Fund
National Anthropological Archives
National Museum of the American Indian
Library of Congress
Advocates for Indigenous California Language Survival

A two-week institute, funded by the Documenting Endangered Languages
program, will be held in Washington, D.C. this coming June. At this hands-on
set of workshops, teams of participants (Native American/First Nations
heritage language learners, teachers and activists) paired with mentors
(experts in linguistics who help guide the participants' work) will explore
the language resources in archives in the District of Columbia area,
particularly the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian Institution’s
National Anthropological Archive. Morning workshops on linguistics, archival
research and language revitalization will be held at the National Museum of
the American Indian. Visits to the archives will be supplemented by lectures
and workshops on linguistics, language teaching and learning, and related
topics. Participants and mentors will be staying in the dorms at George
Washington University, where they can network and study together in the
evenings. The institute will pay for participants’ rooms and provide
breakfasts and lunches (dinner is on your own), and will pay for
transportation to and from Washington, D.C. (capped at $600). A registration
fee of $500 is requested for the two-week institute. Mentors will not be
charged a fee.

We will be accepting 40 participants and 20 or so mentors for this
institute. This is a great opportunity to find and learn how to utilize
archival materials as part of the reclamation, learning and teaching of
indigenous heritage languages, in the company of other like-minded people.
