Virtual Lunch and Learn: "Indigenous Languages of the Southeastern United States"

When: Fri., June 18, 12-1 p.m. 2021

Before European contact, the American Southeast had a tremendous diversity of languages. In South Carolina alone at least 26 languages of 4 different language families (Algic, Iroquoian, Muskogean, and Siouan) were spoken. Within 500 years, diseases, wars, migrations, voluntary and forced displacements had all but wiped out many spoken languages. This lecture will explore the changing landscapes of Native American Languages of the Southeast from the Past to the Present and beyond. To register, send your email to [email protected] and the Native American Studies Center will respond with the meeting ID and password required to join the program.
