2018 Breath Of Life Archival Institute For Indigenous California Languages

2018 Breath Of Life Archival Institute For Indigenous California Languages

June 3-9, 2018

Hosted by the Advocates for Indigenous California Language Survival and the University of California, Berkeley

Breath of Life is a response to California Indian communities and families who want to revive and strengthen their languages, particularly those for which there are no living first language speakers. By working with the linguistic field notes and other documents and recordings, participants in the workshop can learn how to understand and use these materials for the purposes of language revitalization.

University of California, Berkeley has three major archives which, collectively, house the largest collection of unpublished material on California Indian languages. We give thanks to the foresight of those who shared their knowledge with the linguists, making sure that much was recorded for posterity. Their families can find their language, take it off the dusty shelves of the archives, and turn it back into living speech – giving it the Breath of Life.

The Breath of Life Institute invites California Indians to apply. As community researchers, you will find archival materials on your languages, and learn how to use them for increasing your knowledge of your language and for purposes of language revitalization in your community. You will also be able to network with like-minded people who are trying to save their languages.

Linguistics professors, researchers, and graduate students are invited to apply to be linguistic partners for the community researchers. You will help them find materials in the campus archives, and assist them in developing the linguistic knowledge they need to make best use of them.

Applications are due by March 31.

New online database showcases tribal governance resources

A new database on tribal governance is now available http://phys.org/news/2012-10-online-database-showcases-tribal-resources.html. "The Indigenous Governance Database, recently launched by the UA's Native Nations Institute for Leadership, Management and Policy, pulls together in one central location articles, case studies, videos and other resources focused on governance, sovereignty, leadership, and sustainable economic and community development."

Resource for High School Students: Paying for College (Scholarship Booklet)

This is a contribution, to provide scholarship information for Native students, to encourage and promote postsecondary education for Native students, to promote networking opportunities for Native Americans, and to raise awareness and appreciation for the contributions made by Native Americans to our society. I share this resource with the hope that you would also seek compassion about young people who need guidance and support toward finding the quality of life. You may duplicate and distribute this free booklet. ~Rosie Dayzie, email: rosie.dayzie@gmail.com

Extramural Funding Opportunities for Entering Students

Many of the fellowships provide multiple years of funding and are for students in their first year or two of graduate studies. After that, they are no longer eligible to apply. Thus the sooner students learn about these opportunities, the better their chances of preparing a strong application.
