FOR THE MEETING:
Plans are moving forward with an Immersion Language Participation Summit. The general idea is to have a camp-out using our respected Yuman languages, doing activities and sharing with each other the wonderful specialties that make us Yuman. We need input from the other bands to make this a reality. It has been done previous with the Pai Camps and we see that it can work on a larger scale. But it takes planning. So come out for the meeting while there's still time and contribute your ideas. Remember, It's a community's responsibility to keep the language living. For information contact:
- We will be discussing plans for the mini-camp is to be hed in the fall of 2016. This will be made up of people interested in being guides for the major immersion camp in late spring/early summer of 2017. Details will be worked out in this meeting
- We are currently putting together a baseline of 100 phrases that will be used during the YLFS camp. These are drafts of language conversation and can be used as a guide for the different tribes.
- We will discuss whether we will plan another immersion workshop for the year 2016 in place of a full summit. This would introduce the working basics of immersion for all.
