The WAYK team will be traveling to the annual Celebrating Salish Conference, hosted by the Kalispel Tribe. The 2018 Conference is scheduled for March 7-9, 2018.
From the conference organizers: “We host the annual Celebrating Salish Conference, which brings together speakers and learners of all Interior Salish languages in the Inland Northwest: Kalispel, Spokane, Colville-Okanagan, Coeur d’Alene, Wenatchee-Columbian, and Montana Salish. Our goals for this conference are to promote new speakers of our native language, collaborate with our neighboring tribal communities, and build ongoing relationships with one another. The Celebrating Salish Conference is the largest language gathering of native speakers in the entire northwest.”
