Mamook Kom’tax Chinook Pipa

A worthy read on a subject near and dear to a lot of us:

Mamook Kom’tax Chinook Pipa/Learning to Write Chinook Jargon: Indigenous Peoples and Literacy Strategies in the South Central Interior of British Columbia in the Late Nineteenth Century” by Emma Battell Lowman (Historical Studies in Education 29(1):77-98, Spring 2017).

And it’s not as long as you think…a third of it is the endnotes 🙂

Thanks to Emma for publishing a knowledgeable & readable article on how Chinuk Pipa/Chinook Writing was accepted and shared in Native communities!
