About the Lessons
The following lessons do not represent the original Lushootseed curriculum in it's entirety. They are meant to compliment the original text (work books) offering audio clips from two highly respected elders and fluent speakers, Vi Hilbert and Helen Ross.
Both Lushootseed work books (Book One and Book Two) are available through this website.
