Visits from the Karuk language community

April 22, 2023

The week before last, Karuk language teacher Florrine Super visited the campus with eight of her Karuk language students on a college preparedness trip. As part of the visit they talked about their work with the Karuk language in Line Mikkelsen's freshman seminar on linguistic diversity in California.

That same week, Karuk cultural practitioners Dixie Rogers and Claudette visited Linguistics 55AC ("The American Languages") to share their experiences learning the Karuk language in the context of material culture, as well as an introduction and demonstration of Karuk basket weaving.
