Linguist, Language Activist, Wakashanist
I am a linguist, language activist, and Wakashanist. I document and teach Aboriginal American languages spoken on and around Vancouver Island, especially Nuuchahnulth, Ditidaht, Kwak̓wala, and Makah. I work with Native people and communities to restore their languages, as well as on such technical topics as prosodic phonology, clisis, and Wakashan grammar. I am based in Sidney, Somass (Port Alberni), and Seattle.
