What happens when a people loses their language? How can it be put back together?
This course will describe what has happened to Chumash and other Native American languages since European settlement, recent efforts to reclaim them, and discuss a beautiful dictionary produced by the Santa Ynez Chumash.
Participants will learn a few Chumash words, hear a story told in its native language (and English), and be engaged.
