The Natives4Linguistics website

Welcome to our official website!

With this website, we aim to share information on what N4L is about, who’s involved, past doings and future plans. We also hope this site will provide resources for Indigenous language world-wide. Therefore, if you have any information that you would like to share, please let us know via the contact page.

When I say us/we, I am referring to the N4L project staff, but I, Adrienne, will be the primary person maintaining this site. Keshhi/Hello everyone! I will do the best I can, with as much time as I can spare and would appreciate constructive feedback and/or criticism. It’s always going to be a work in progress

Thanks for reading!
