I found a good resource for an almost extinct Iroquoian language... I might learn it along with Cayuga.

http://www.mingolanguage.org/

It seems very very close to Cayuga. Different orthography and I hate it but it can always be fixed :lol: . Nasal Hooks and Colons can fix it.

I've actually thought of learning Mingo before. Though that website hasn't been updated in forever it still has some great stuff on it. :wink:

In other news, I just bought the Cayuga Teaching Grammar off Amazon. I'm a little disappointed there is no audio available for it (maybe just for students?). Oh well, still getting it.

I'm happy to report that I just got the Cayuga Teaching Grammar and I think it will make a wonderful supplement to Wadewayénstanih.

In other news, I've just emailed both the Oneida and Seneca tribes to inquire about resources, so we'll see how that goes. Fingers crossed! :D

Time for a long over due update on my emails!

I've heard back from the Seneca tribe, and unfortunately the person I spoke with said that they do not really have any textbooks or the like (can't say I'm surprised), so no luck there unfortunately. :(

I haven't heard back from the Oneida tribe, so I'll try again.

Here are two Oneida elders playing pool and talking in Oneida:

Dette er nemlig Formelen, som beskriver Selvets Tilstand, naar Fortvivlelsen ganske er udryddet: i at forholde sig til sig selv, og i at ville være sig selv grunder Selvet gjennemsigtigt i den Magt, som satte det. (This is namely the formula, that describes the condition of the self, when despair is completely eradicated: by relating itself to itself, and by willing to be itself, the self is grounded transparently in the power which constituted it) (Søren Kierkegaard, The sickness unto death)

I just so happen to be searching around online the other day, and I found this cool (presumably new) website from the Seneca Tribe on their language:
http://senecalanguage.com/
It looks really promising! They even have a reference grammar and English to Seneca dictionary uploaded.
They also have a language word/phrasebook. I'm hoping an actual textbook is eventually uploaded/created.

Oh wow, I'd never heard of this language before! I wouldn't have heard of its existence if you hadn't mentioned it.

Yeah, it's a secret among the Iroquoian languages. Not many people know about it. I've known about it precisely because of both that site, and my interest in Iroquoian languages. :P

I didn't know until now that languages could keep their relatives a closely-guarded secret until now, either. :lol:
