Live Your Language Alliance (LYLA) Conference
Thursday, March 15, 2012
Register by March 9!
The California Conference on American Indian Education (CCAIE) is holding their annual conference
March 15-17, 2012 at Humboldt State University. (http://humboldt.edu/ccaie/)
In collaboration with the 35th Annual California Conference on American Indian Education, and on behalf of the Live Your Language Alliance, we would like to invite you to register for the LYLA Pre-Conference gathering. The Live your Language Alliance was envisioned by language advocates, language programs, and tribal communities to support the language preservation and revitalization efforts of Native communities throughout California.
Past LYLA conferences planted seeds of inspiration for many language program activities and events. Over the past 5 years, we have continued to actively teach, learn, document, share teaching strategies, and promote language revitalization efforts with other tribal communities. The time has now arrived to reflect, visit, and share our experiences with our friends and colleagues across the state.
This gathering will address language revitalization strategies, teaching methodologies, and grassroots language revitalization. The workshops will provide an opportunity for tribal language programs and educators to exchange ideas, network and form new alliances. Please save the date and check the website above for registration information.
For more information contact the LYLA Conference Coordinator: Leo Canez at firstname.lastname@example.org
MEETING LOCATION: On the campus of California State University at Humboldt, in Arcata, California. Thursday, March 15th, starting at 8:30am.

PARKING INFO!! Park in the big lot down by the new dorms. $3.50 to park for the entire day. There
should be lots of parking since you will be there early in the day and it will be Spring Break. But parking will be enforced and I hear tickets are $30 bucks. Don't park in the library lot, that is for Staff Only.
A shuttle will transport attendees from parking lot to the conference location. Call Chag at 707-496-2407 for more information or to request a pick-up.
