Research

I am currently involved in projects related to the documentation of four Native American (or First Nations) languages: Sahaptin (Yakama (or Yakima) dialect) (spoken in Washington state), Deg Xinag (spoken in Alaska), Kwadacha (Ft. Ware) Sekani (Tsek'ene), and Witsuwit'en (spoken in British Columbia).

Current funded research project:

(with Virginia Beavert) "Continuation of Sahaptin textual transcription and translation". The Jacobs Research Funds. 2016.
