Native American Article Archives

This is simply an archive of old news stories and other articles of interest to our readers which are no longer available on the Internet, so we've reproduced them here. Unlike other materials on our site, we are not the authors of any of these articles. If you are the author and you would prefer that the article not be preserved here, just let us know and we'll remove it. We only archive articles when we are unable to find another copy of the text online to link to. News sites, in particular, seem not to keep old articles around very long. Online information about Native American languages and language revival is often scanty and we don't want valuable information to be lost simply because the article gets to be a year old or somebody's website domain expires.

Unfortunately we cannot reproduce soundfiles unless the original owner gives us permission. If you are a webmaster who had Native American soundfiles or any other native language materials online that you can't maintain any longer but would like to preserve for posterity, please contact us and we will archive it for you. It is all free of charge. Native Languages of the Americas is an educational non-profit organization working to preserve and promote indigenous American languages and to and present information about native people in a positive and contemporary way. We welcome feedback and suggestions for collaborative projects.
