The Crow Summer Institute is occurring in Crow Agency, Montana, at the Little Big Horn College starting June 3rd through June 21st of 2019. This in-depth 3 week long institute is the leading event for teachers and language learners interested in advancing their knowledge in Crow culture and language. As the number of Crow language speakers continues to decline it is critical that tribal members as well as language teachers attend these events to revitalize the language.
Having the opportunity to increase their knowledge and spread awareness for the community is invaluable. The summer institute will offer a variety of over 10 courses. These classes include Teaching, Process Writing, Phonology, and Inflectional Morphology. No matter ones background the event will offer something for all levels of learners. The institute offers credits and CEU’s to teachers and others hoping to increase their Language skills.
There is no cost to attend the event. Registration is available at www.regonline.com/2019CSI The Crow Language Consortium is a collective of schools, colleges, and educators that are working to preserve the Crow language to ensure that it can be passed on to future generations. They work to support learners and teachers by developing language materials such as textbooks, dictionaries, flashcards, posters and more by providing access to apps and multimedia and by organizing intensive teacher training and workshops.
