Libraries Are For Everyone: Kiksht/Wasq’u

Colleen from Clackamas Community College in Oregon City, OR reached out to me with a Kiksht/Wasq’u translation. One of the women who helped with the translation shared this with Colleen:

This language has no longer any elder fluent speakers surviving, but we have recording hard copies on hand.

Thank you for inviting our language!

I am so glad that members of the tribe was able to figure out a translation that comes closest to expressing the sentiment despite the sad reason it was extra challenging.

Thank you to both Colleen and the tribal members who made this translation possible!!!
