Squamish Dictionary Published

Squamish (a.k.a. Skwxwú7mesh), traditionally spoken in the Northwest Coast, has only about 10 elder speakers remaining out of 3,300 tribal members. After 18 years of work by a small team of Native linguists led by editor-in-chief Dr. Peter Jacobs, the first ever Squamish Dictionary was published containing around 8,000 entries from 32 contributors. It is priced at $40, but you can find it much cheaper on Amazon.

    First off I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question which I’d
    like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear
    your head before writing. I have had a difficult
    time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying to figure
    out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Thanks!
