KeyBank Professional Development Center

Saving the language that brought us "Seattle"
   by Chetanya Robinson, Crosscut, May 26, 2016

"This is a fascinating article by a Crosscut intern who also happens to be a UW student in journalism and Middle Eastern studies. The piece describes the launch of the Lushootseed Language Institute and its summer immersion course, and then builds on that to describe numerous efforts to preserve indigenous languages in the Northwest. The article quotes Danica Miller, assistant professor in SIAS, describing her as the course facilitator."  John Burkhardt, Associate Director, Communications, Office of Advancement, UW Tacoma
