Dear friends and colleagues:
The latest undertaking by the Endangered Alphabets Project and our partner
non-profit, Our Golden Hour, will be to create a very unusual children's
On the left-hand (or verso) page, we'll show an illustration of something
the children will easily recognize from everyday life: for example, a
monkey, an elephant, a hand, a foot, a mango.
On the right-hand page we'll display the corresponding word in Mro, Marma,
Chakma, Tripura, Bangla, and English.
At the moment, we're trying to track down speakers of the indigenous
languages of the Hill Tracts to help us with our wordhoard, and
illustrators familiar with Bangladesh or the Hill Tracts in particular who
can create authentic illustrations in a familiar idiom.
If you have advice or suggestions, or if you have contacts who might he
able to help with such skills/knowledge, please don't hesitate to contact
me at brookes at champlain.edu.

P.S. We're trying to raise the cost of printing by Kickstarter:
