University of Washington to Offer Lushootseed Language Immersion Program*

Northwest Indian Language Institute at the University of Oregon. Costs for UWT’s program were kept low thanks to the Puyallup Tribal Council’s generous grant to UWT last year that launched a pathbreaking collaboration to infuse Native ways of knowing into UW Tacoma teaching, learning and research. The grant has amplified the teaching, research and service of a growing cluster of Native American faculty and staff at UW Tacoma. Last year the university hired Danica Miller (Puyallup) and Michelle Montgomery (Eastern Band Cherokee; Haliwa Saponi) as assistant professors of Native American studies in the School of Interdisciplinary Arts. Northwest Indian Language Institute at the University of Oregon.
