Write a poem or short story in Lushootseed! Invitation Request: Lushootseed Research is going to publish a compilation of original Lushootseed stories. We are inviting all Lushootseed students and teachers to create a short story or poem in Lushootseed (limited to one page, typed 12 font). Please include a separate English translation. You're welcome to include an illustration. Original stories/poems may be submitted in advance, or a hard copy may be brought to the conference. If you would like to share your story during the conference please submit it to lutteach@uw.edu prior to April 29th.

Online Dictionary has now launched!

We are proud to announce that the Lushootseed Dictionary (Bates, Hess, & Hilbert 1994) is no available, and searchable online. This is now possible thanks to the fantastic work of Prof. Deryle Lonsdale, the developer of the online dictionary system.
You can access the dictionary by using the link in our menu bar or going to: www.lushootseeddictionary.org.
