Reviving Wampanoag (an Algonquian language of north America)

David (via Nick): 30.09.10

If you are interested in comparing the language revival work in Australia that we examined in Topic 6 with some overseas examples, you might find this site interesting. Jessie Little Doe Baird is a linguist and the co-founder and director of the Wôpanâak Language Reclamation Project in Mashpee, Massachusetts. She’s engaged in reviving Wampanoag (or Wôpanâak), the Algonquian language of her ancestors, once spoken by tens of thousands of people but not spoken since the middle of the 19thC.
