Virtual Lecture: Intro to Nez Perce and other Sahaptin languages with Angel Sobotta

May 14 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

$30.00
Nez Perce Language Program app is available on your phone!

This two hour interactive lecture with Angel Sobotta will cover:

  • Nez Perce and other Sahaptin languages. How close are they? What do they share or what makes them different?
  • Accepted linguistic spellings and pronunciations so that we can follow words on maps, words that come up in tribal papers etc.
  • Common greetings and place names, especially names of places in Oregon and Idaho.
  • Family names–how are they passed down and carried on. What names can a family choose from? Are native names used more now than in previous decades?
  • Next steps for those who want to really learn the language.

 

Angel Sobotta is a Nez Perce mom, dancer, language instructor, and PHd student at the University of Idaho.
