LSA SIG on Native Americans in Linguistics

Sigwan Thivierge is an original member of Natives4Linguistics, a new Special Interest Group convened under the auspices the Linguistic Society of America. Any member of the LSA is welcome to join the group, whose goals are:

  • "Increasing the participation of Native American and other Indigenous peoples within the discipline of Linguistics as well as at the LSA Annual Meeting."
  • "Developing and promoting decolonial strategies to better incorporate Native American and other Indigenous needs and values about language into linguistic science. This includes sharing these with LSA leaders and assisting them with implementation."
  • "Creating a space for Indigenous community scholars and linguists, and non-Indigenous linguist partners to network and gain insight on relevant issues concerning Indigenous communities and their respective languages."
