Ocelot: Drove through the Umatilla peoples' lands, and also Warm Springs' Indian Reservation lands today, Created two new, Native American languages' wiki, Subject pages - in both Sahaptin and Chinook, for open teaching and learning, each of which will become a school. Both of these languages will also become schools in those languages.
... drove through the Umatilla (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Umatilla_people) peoples' lands today (on Interstate 84 in Oregon) and learned they are a Sahaptin language (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sahaptin_language) speaking group, originally.
So I created a new Sahaptin language, wiki, Subject page at WUaS -
Anyone can teach a course or what they'd like to YouTube, for example, as well as add resources.
And here are likes other Native American language resources at WUaS ...
I also drove through Warm Springs' Indian Reservation lands today -
and learned they speak the Chinook language - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinook_Jargon - which is a pidgin ("Like the Grand Ronde Agency in western Oregon, the Warm Springs Reservation is one of the last holdouts in the U.S. of speakers of the Chinook Jargon because of its utility as an inter-tribal language. The forms of the Jargon used by elders in Warm Springs vary considerably from the heavily-creolized form at Grand Ronde. Kiksht, Numu and Ichishkiin Snwit languages are taught in the Warm Springs Reservation schools").
So I created a Chinook language, wiki, Subject page at WUaS -
for open teaching and learning, and which will become a school.
Both of these languages will also become schools in those languages.
See, too, another post from two days ago (June 18, 2013) about two, other, new, Native American languages at WUaS -
