One the first page, if you go down to Dogrib on the list it's the first website; the Tlicho Tribal website.

For ease however, I'll post it here too: http://www.tlicho.ca/gonaowo/resources

By the way, this seems to be offline, but I have it if anyone needs it. It's about 15M in size.

Also note that, it's of the northern variety. I'm concentrating on the southwest variety (they're quite different), so it's not all that useful to me, just glancing at it.

Yes, it is offline now. It's a pity.



This evening I've found something I've been waiting for a long time. It is "A Beginning Course in Salish & Pend d'Oreille Dialect Language Curriculum", an adaptation of the "Nsəlxcin (Okanagan) Curriculum Project" and "Kalispel Language Curriculum". It is here:

https://sites.google.com/site/salishlanguage/home

The course is composed of three books. At the moment, only the first book (lessons 1-45) is downloadable. I hope the other two will be downloadable soon!!

Unfortunately, this course uses an alphabet which doesn't include the sounds ʕ (pharingeal), ʕʷ (pharingeal with rounded lips), ʔʕ (glottalized pharingeal!!), ʔʕʷ (glottalized pharingeal with rounded lips) and ə (schwa), which are part of the phonetic inventory of these two languages, as well as of that of Kalispel and Spokane, which are very close to them. Anyway, it is an important publication!

The Salish language is also known as Bitterrot Salish, but natives uses the name Seliš. The Pend d'Oreille has some traits which are closer to Kalispel. The Salish and Pend d'Oreille languages can also be called Montana Salish.

This is a great website for Navajo:

It has short Navajo children's multimedia books with audio.

Which reminds me that I should see what ever happened to my copy of Dine Bizaad Binahoo’aah. I ordered it back in November of last year. :?

Looks like the University of Colorado is reworking it's Arapaho resources. They have added a web version of Let's Learn Arapaho with audio, and other materials. These include some phrases pertaining to certain aspects of modern life, and pdf resources from Wyoming schools and tribes. It is still a work in progress, but it's coming along quite well. Awesomeness all around! :D

Here's a new (to me anyway) website for Mohawk:
http://www.kanehsatakevoices.com/
It has online lessons with audio (though I haven't fully explored the lessons, they seem lacking with grammar information), and some books for sale (mostly stories in Mohawk, sometimes with translations into English and/or French).

Some of the text runs together (on my monitor and resolution anyway), but it's still a nifty site.

Do you happen to know also a good Mohawk dictionary online?
I found only this http://www.freelang.net/online/mohawk.php and this http://archive.org/details/radicalwordsmoh00goog . Not the best, sadly. :(

Sorry for the late responce. I thought I had replied to this already.

No. Unfortunately I don't know of a good Mohawk dictionary online OR in print. I recently have tried looking but so far nothing. It's a real shame too. Mohawk is an awesome language. Needless to say if I find anything I'll post it here.

I think I may want to do Potawatomi for this Powwow. Adding some resources onto these:

Forest County Potawatomi:
Potawatomi Language Book I
Potawatomi Language Book II
Potawatomi Language Book III

Citizen Potawatomi Nation [lots of helpful downloads here]

potawatomiheritage.org

Laura Buszard-Welcher:
Potawatomi Lexicon
Constructional Polysemy and Mental Spaces in Potawatomi Discourse

Christian things:
1844 partial translation of the Bible (Matthew and Acts)
1866 Prayers and Hymns [hard to read]
>>>Prayers from above 1866 book + 10 Commandments
(Check Citizen Potawatomi Nation for these books too- go to "Language" and then "Culture")
Words of Life Audio Recordings

I'll add more if I remember/ find something.

Oh cool! I look forward to following your progress. There seems to be a fair amount of inter-intelligibility between Potawatomi and Ojibwe (my Powwow choice).

I don't know if I will do Potawatomi. I like it a lot, but none of those resources go very in depth. It's hard to learn how to make your own sentences. I thought about doing Ojibwe too though. I found some dictionaries, a thesaurus, and a book of texts for it at my library! :mrgreen:
It also had a huge Navajo grammar/ dictionary, but I don't like Navajo.

But I'm still looking around. I am leaning towards staying with Creek, as of now.
