Understanding Language Through Culture

Salish is the traditional language of the Seliš-Ql̓ispe people of western Montana and is extremely endangered. An NEH Documenting Endangered Languages Fellowship in 2020 allowed linguist anthropologist Rebecca Wood, in collaboration with tribal partners, to analyze stories in Salish and better understand cultural values embedded in the language. This work will help enhance the community’s current language teaching tools.

“Every language has a whole different worldview, a different way of thinking about things.”

–Rebecca Wood
