All day
  Oklahoma Breath of Life Workshop  
(Special Events)

A collaboration between UT Arlington and the University of Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Breath of Life, Silent No More Workshop is a week long (Sunday through Friday), intensive workshop in linguistics and language renewal. The workshop is especially designed for indigenous people from communities who no longer have any fluent, first language speakers. With motivation from community members, archival documentation, and training in how to use this documentation, these languages can have a new breath of life and can be spoken again.

OKBOL Workshop trains participants how to:

*find archived language materials
*read phonetic writing
*understand how their language works
*start a database to manage and access their language
information
*begin the process of language and cultural
revitalization
*create fun and interactive teaching materials from old
sources
