I was really neat to read, and I remember the specific event in question referenced in the article. Basically, when gravity waves were first detected by LIGO, one of the languages the press release was translated into was Blackfoot. One of the researchers is Blackfoot and he suggested the idea of having the press release translated into his language. His mother was the one who did the translating, and the article goes into how she tackled concepts where there wasn't a native Blackfoot word for it. It's a very fascinating read.
