Investigations on the Life of a Language.

Skarurękyé:ha is currently spoken only on the Tuscarora Indian Nation reservation located near Niagara Falls. This talk will walk through the relationship of 'linguistics contributions': documentation, concepts about the language, concepts within the language, and 'revitalization activities': creating new materials, teaching new speakers.

Speaker Monty Hill is a Tuscarora Beaver clan member from the Tuscarora Indian Nation reservation.

This is a presentation of the Linguistics Student Association.
