What we did in our BC Chinuk Wawa session today!
This morning (8AM Pacific time = BC, WA, Oregon, California, Alaska time), we worked together to read through some Romans.

By that, I mean the Book of Romans, from the Bible.
This was in a summarized form, in Jargon, from the “Chinook Book of Devotions“.
That book’s written in Chinuk Pipa shorthand alphabet — so I put it into this same alphabet you’re looking at right now.
Which makes the words recognizable.
We have a wonderful group of people who meet up every Saturday morning, focusing on northern-dialect Chinuk Wawa.(*)

(*) If you have any acquaintance with Grand Ronde / Lane Community College / old-books Chinook Jargon, you’ll definitely understand the northern dialect too!
