Re: “Welcome Back Wailaki: An Extinct Native Language Rebounds

This is the greatest thing to happen for the Wailaki Nation and the many who say "I am Wailaki", there are many of us desendances whose ancestors were taken as bride or live in house hold from the reservation at Round Valley, teaching their young to try and fit in or don't call attention to yourself, my great great grandfather married three different Jenny"s from Round Valley, we all share the same gggfather but other gggmother, we are the Somerville, the Briceland, the Piner, the Smith, the Pierce, the Woodman, the Luke, these are our Elders names and the list goes on and on and we are Proud to be Wailaki even though we don't have a Reservation to call home, we are recognized as a individual with a Indian roll number and $200.00 to give up my rights to land or reservation when I was 9yrs old in a federal lawsuit settlement. I am very proud of these students commitment in their endeavors in bringing our language back home!
