Yurok Language Survival School and Restoration Project
Last year we applied for a three year grant
"The Esther Martinez Grant"
We were very fortunate to hear that we were awarded the grant!
We also hire three new staff members! We welcomed Victoria Carlson to the Klamath site as a Language Specialist II, Annelia Norris, and Chelsea Reed as Language Immersion teachers at the Weitchpec Elementary Yurok Magnet School.
Project Goal: Develop and implement a ½ day cross-curricular Yurok immersion pilot program at the Weitchpec Elementary School-Yurok Magnate Program on the Yurok Reservation. Further, to develop the teachers and curriculum necessary to implement core subject immersion programs at the elementary schools that serve the Yurok Reservation.
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.
The purpose of this website is to support language revitalization efforts of Native American tribes. The Acorn is sacred to the tribes of Northern California and Southern Oregon. The name ACORNS is in honor of these tribes who helped spawn this effort. ACORNS is open source and can be freely used for non-commercial purposes. Acorns software works on all computer platforms.
