Part II: Continuing linguistic research and developing materials for literacy education in Salasaka Kichwa
In 2015, we conducted linguistic field research in Salasaka, Ecuador on the endangered indigenous language, Salasaka Kichwa. We are now returning to work with nationals in finding concrete ways to safeguard the vitality of this language through cultural and linguistic studies. Our focus is to support the Salasakas to use their language in every area of life, for generations to come, in a rapidly changing, multilingual world.
