The Native language portion of our site will be including video programming. As an example here is a very short video made at night using an iSight camera on a MacBook computer. It isn’t technically a “program” since it was done without much forethought. Just wanted to tell my son and his family ‘hello’. (They live in Oz, down under.)
After recording my message in English I decided to add Karuk language subtitles. And then it was time to post. Here it is.
The really funny thing about populating a site with Native language materials is the ‘search’ for images. When looking for body parts you often are presented with images of medical afflictions. Very gruesome sometimes. Don’t like it. Horrible at times.
So for me it’s almost always better to draw body parts. Animals are a different matter. So is just about every other kind of image that you might seek to illustrate and populate your language site.
Welcome to the new site for the Institute of Native Knowledge. We are developing a new website currently. We hope to see you soon with a bevy of info and connections with the Native Knowledge of northwestern California with a distinct Karuk emphasis!
