This project is a language reclamation project founded for the Brotherton Indian Nation. Language is the heart of culture, and where many natives across America have lost their ancestor’s tongue many of us have the ability to claim it back again and pass it to future generations.
This project is largely thanks to Mz. Stephanie Fielding and Conor Quinn, without whose linguistic knowledge and grasp of our language this project would be a lot more difficult than it already is. Also, we all must nod and give humble thanks to Fidelia Fielding, who kept to her language even when it was falling into disuse around her, and worked to preserve what she could remember. Surely without her efforts, the language as she knew it would be lost entirely.
To learn a language means you must use it. The same goes for not losing a language. Resources for practice will be added to this website – albeit slowly – with intention for you to USE them. Please do so.
Nahunshásh! Until next time we meet.
