As announced earlier this year, the Myaamia Center was awarded a grant to administrate the 2015 National Breath of Life Archival Institute for Indigenous Languages. Be sure to read our announcement for more details.
Breath of Life is unique in providing archival access for native language activists and scholars. Over the course of two weeks in June of 2015, approximately 40 native community members from across the country will gather to analyze documentation on their languages and cultures in the nation’s capital. They will work in the National Anthropological Archives, the collections of the National Museum of Natural History and the National Museum of the American Indian, as well as in the Library of Congress.
Applications for the 2015 National Breath of Life workshop are now being accepted! Visit the website for more information, and be sure to share with any interested people! Applications must be submitted by November 15, 2014. Please contact the Myaamia Center at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions!
