Project History In spring 2007, we received a copy of "A Blackfoot Language Study" (Holterman et al. 1996), a now out-of-print grammar text and dictionary of the Blackfoot language, from the Piegan Institute . Included was a CD with entries from the first four letters in the dictionary pronounced by two native speakers of Blackfoot. During the 2007-2008 school year, Josh Birchall and Meredith Ward began the process of creating an online version of Holterman's dictionary and linking them to the audio files provided by the Piegan Institute.

bode'wadmimo speak Potawatomi This introduction to our language pages makes some brief comments on the Potawatomi language , efforts to save and revitalize it , and the contents of these language pages . The Language The Potawatomi language belongs to the Algonkian language group; as such it is related in structure and vocabulary to the Ojibwe, Menominee, Kickapoo, Miami-Illinois, Shawnee and Cree languages, and most closely resembles Ojibwe and Kickapoo. Linguists classify it as a separate language that became a distinct entity long ago. Most Potawatomi who are involved with the language feel strongly that this is so.
The Arapaho Project seeks to give information about the Arapaho Nation, especially in relation to the state of Colorado. The Arapaho were one of the two principle tribes formerly occupying eastern and central Colorado (along with the Cheyenne), including the Front Range urban corridor where the majority of Coloradoans live today. This site is a cooperative effort of students at the University of Colorado, Boulder and the Northern Arapaho Tribe, Wind River Reservation, Wyoming.
