Another famous CJ speaker: choreographer Merce Cunningham

I’ve been seeing to it that public access to the awesome CHINOOK-L archive is restored; bookmark it for your questions about Jargon.  One of the last messages in that older listserv that I manage (we all kind of switched to FB, blogs & such, eh?) is this nice tidbit.

Merce Cunningham

Merce Cunningham was a very famous choreographer.  He was born in Centralia, Washington in 1919, so guess what…

He spoke Chinook Jargon.  With other dancers.  In New York City.  Weird but true!
