UC Berkeley - Yurok Language Project

The Yurok Language Project combines fieldwork with Yurok elders (recording texts, words, and grammatical information) and philological analysis of earlier fieldnotes and recordings. We bring new and older work on Yurok together into a single digital archive, incorporating material from as early as 1850 to the present day.
