Siletz Talking Dictionary featured in New York Times article


At Living Tongues Institute, we have collaborated with the Siletz Dee-ni tribe in Oregon for the past 7 years, to create the Siletz Dee-ni Talking Dictionary. This project, along with other Siletz language revitalization efforts, was recently featured in the New York Times. Check out the full article here. We recommend listening to the audio clips on the left side of the screen, so you can hear Bud Lane’s English translations of some very interesting Siletz terms!
