In this presentation, Dr. Wood will explore the importance of storytelling to language revitalization efforts amongst the Salish-Pend d'Oreille of western Montana, focusing on how these narratives build relationships to landscape, community, and culture.

Dr. Wood is an Instructor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs. She is a linguistic anthropologist whose research focuses on understanding community language revitalization efforts in Native North America. More specifically, she is interested in the ways language embodies important sociocultural information and provides insight into how cultural groups deal with changing environments through the theoretical approaches of language socialization, language ideologies, and semiotics.
