Mohawk Dictionary is creating Endangered Language Initiative

patrons



Kanienkeha.net (Mohawk) Language Initiative is a labor of love brought to you by me (Benjamin II) and a team (yes, a full TEAM) of people around the North American continent who source words, edit stories, book our live meetings, maintain our website, and on and on.

We’re an independent operation and it’s a very costly production when you add up all the expenses we have as we pay our staff, conduct our interviews, produce our content, record stories, put games and lists together, maintain a vibrant web presence, etc.


Even with all of this up and running, we are still desperately in need of extra funding for publicity, marketing and new team members so we can continue to grow. So if you like Kanien’keha Language Initiative, and you want to see and hear the language grow, please help keep Kanien’keha Language Initiative running.

Sample Flash Card (Number Ten)

All flash cards are 3x5 so they fit well with the standard size index cards. They also come with corners cut or you can let me know if you want the corners left uncut. Become a patron and Pledge $20/month to get our starter set of 50 cards; 14 colors, 10 numbers, 9 shapes, 17 sight words. Every month that you continue to support our endangered language initiative you will receive four (4) new cards, mailed to you from our collectors series.

Taking great Notes



What Incentive do you have to support Kanienkehaha.net?

By contributing to this campaign, you will be helping me grow the Kanienkeha language and as we reach the campaign goals it will upgrade the production of our learning materials. You'll be directly responsible for there being more Mohawk language in the world for you to enjoy than I could ever produce without your support.

Thank you for supporting my Endangered Language Initiative!
