This session will explore Indigenous languages within a hemispheric context, bringing together scholars working on the Americas and Pacific Islands, with emphasis on tribal nations that cross settler borders and on tribal linguistic concerns. Vital to the discussions will be language revitalization, treaty rhetorics, and self-representation, in creative and scholarly modes, from within or outside tribal communities and within or outside the academy.
