Salish Gets Improved Dictionary

The Northwest Coast Native language Nkwusm (Salishan) got over 4,000 copies of the second edition of the “Selis nyo?nuntn: Medicine for the Salish Language” dictionary, for reference use in their immersion schools in Arlee. Executive director Tachini Pete is the editor, and has studied this language for 16 years. Improvements include new and updated entries, and English to Salish translations; it grew from 186 pages to 816. Only about 50 people speak fluent Salish today, mostly over the age of 75. People all around the world have been buying them for $45 by calling 406-726-5050 or visiting salishworld.com.
