Learning Resources

This is the resource list for all the languages of indigenous North America I (and others) could find. It's quite a list.

If you're looking for anything in particular just use the search function for the thread (or your browser). It may not have what you're looking for, so be warned! Also, as can be imagined, I do not have most of these (ones I personally have/are using/have used are marked with an :arrow: ), thus I can not attest to the material contained in all of these, sorry. Buy at your own risk! Though I'd be more then happy to give my impressions of resources I do have. :wink:

I have also added links to forums both here at Unilang, and a few others from elsewhere on the web where you can get further help from people.

If any links or products are unavailable please post in this thread or PM me so I can either fix or remove the link. And if you want anything added to the list post in this thread or PM me. Web resources can just be posted like normal in this thread. Due to the nature to the thread/forum, please be as descriptive as possible, stating at least the language and language family the resource is in/about if possible. Thanks.

Things will continue to be added, so keep checking back! 8-)

Languages are listed alphabetically by language family then by individual languages (which are in bold font):

Several different fonts and keyboards for a bunch of N.A. languages are available here.

Multiple Language Families:

Alaskan Languages:
[A pdf repository with several resources, on all Alaskan languages, not just Eskimo-Aleut]

Ontario Canada Native Language Support Documents: ... elang.html

Happy too!
Greenlandic (as well as all other Eskimo-Aleut languages) is quite a fascinating language to me.
But unfortunately Greenlandic has been 'the one that got away' thus far. Mainly due to the combination of most (if not all) the textbooks for the language are in Danish, and not knowing where to get them anyway. Thanks a ton for the links!

Oh, and it's not like web-links can't go here. I don't want my first post to deter anyone from posting websites just because almost all of my links at the top are print materials.
So you can post most anything that has to do with any of these languages here. Grammars, readers, websites, lessons/textbooks, dictionaries/word-lists, ect.

You should check out the learning materials thread in the Eskimo-Aleut forum. Qaagit is a very good textbook, even if you don't speak Danish! Kalaallisut has a lot of resources like children's books and novels, radio and news clips and also an online newspaper.

I certainly will check out Qaagit. I'm planning on learning some Danish soon anyway. And for anything I don't understand (or if I don't get to Danish) there's always google translate!

Do you lot think it would be better to have links to the Nahuatl and Eskimo-Aleut forums, which have some great threads of resources, rather than have two separate lists?

As in do I think the resources I put in this list for those languages should be in their own forums?
Yeah, probably. I suppose I'll do that. Though I'll probably leave then here too.

Also added links to the forums for languages that have separate forums.

There is a Papago/O'odham (Uto-Aztecan) lesson here:
It's only one lesson unfortunately, but at least it gives you an idea of how the language sounds before moving on to the grammar 8-) .
It doesn't work with Firefox (I found that out the hard way :lol: ), it seems to work well with IE. It requires a font as well. The relevant info is on the page.

Added two resources for Comanche on the 'master' list. Too bad there aren't any textbooks or web lessons that I know of . .

And added some Dena'ina Athabascan sites.

Added some things for Sarcee, an Athabascan language.
And I should point out that there are several readers for Alaskan languages (Athabascan and Eskimo-Aleut languages) over at ERIC. Not that they'll probably help most people. You really need at least a grammar and dictionary to go with them to get anything out of them. :?

And finally added some Mayan resources.

Just added a Chickasaw (Muskogean) textbook to the master list. Don't know how that one went unnoticed for so long!
