Northern Paiute Scholar in the news

Ark. prof works to save endangered Indian language

This story started in the Arkensas Democrat-Gazette (content now behind paywall), and has been published by various papers since.

The story reports that Northern Paiute has about 300 speakers, most of whom are over 50. And that Professor Tim Thorne recorded 150-200 hours of oral literature in a six-week visit to Oregon.
