Rou Soulatlouy conversation book project
Due to COVID-19 precautions, we cannot hold in-person workshops.
VIRTUAL WORKSHOPS: Please contact us if you would like to meet remotely using Zoom or Skype (we can buy a limited number of webcams for virtual meetings if you do not have one already): email@example.com
WIYOT VOICES NEEDED: As we finalize conversations for the book, we are looking for Wiyot people (enrolled tribal citizens and anyone with Wiyot ancestry) to record audio that we will link to the printed book. We would like to include Wiyot voices of all ages and genders, and we can offer a small honorarium for your time. We will credit you in the book and we'll coach you on pronunciation, so please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be one of our book narrators!
ONLINE PARTICIPATION: We are using an online tool called Padlet that allows anyone to comment on conversation topics we are already working on, or propose new topics to be included in the conversation book. Check it out below and let us know what you think!
Based on requests and comments in our 2020 in-person workshops and online (via Facebook & Padlet), we have created draft Soulatluk conversations on the following topics (click bold text topics to download a printable draft conversation-in-progress):
- Feelings & health

- Counting people & animals (1-5)
- Cooking & food preparation
- Food, flavors, likes & dislikes
- Hide & seek
- Describing people
- Describing things
- Hunting & fishing
- Time of day
- Going to the beach
- Signs, symbols, & luck
