The Global Need to Preserve Native and Endangered Languages and Cultures:  Focus on the Serrano Language of the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians.

Thursday, November 19, Dr. Ernest Siva (with Marcus Smith, Blake Cotton, and Ixchell Keller) presented a talk on "The Global Need to Preserve Native and Endangered Languages and Cultures:  Focus on the Serrano Language of the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians."

Dr. Siva, one of the last remaining speakers of the Serrano language, has served as tribal  historian  and cultural advisor for the Morongo Band of Mission Indians since 1996.  He has written a book, Voices of the Flute, and has co-founded non-profit organizations dedicated to preserving the  histories of endangered cultures, languages, and arts.

Marcus Smith and Blake Cotton, two linguists who helped to codify the Serrano language, will describe their ongoing work.  Ixchell Keller will describe the teaching methods she uses to preserve the Serrano language through educational outreach programs. The event was sponsored by the Center for Indigenous Peoples Studies,
