Reaching Out to Local Indigenous Communities
CSILW has initiated a pilot project to make contacts with local immigrant communities in the Denver area, in order to research Meso-American indigenous languages. Many immigrants from Mexico and Central America are native speakers of indigenous languages. Their presence in Denver would allow CSILW to engage in relatively low-cost efforts to increase documentation of these languages. At the same time, CSILW will explore the needs and interests of the communities themselves with regards to language education and retention efforts, since many of the immigrants return home eventually to their own communities. This project has now produced a video on Mezquital Otomi, and one student is currently working on a dissertation on Huichol.
