Professor Andy Cowell and Ph.D. student Irina Wagner were recently featured in an article by the University of Colorado, Boulder's Research & Innovation Office.

The article describes their preservation and revitalization work on Arapaho, a highly endangered language of the Great Plains with only about 200 speakers living today. The Arapaho Language Project includes a website that, in Wagner's words, "connects the current speakers to younger generations who didn’t get the chance to learn the language". Professor Cowell commented that "the Project is about more than just preserving the language. It’s about preserving the ethnohistory of their tribe, which is very different from what is in textbooks".
