Product Description

The future of the Cahuilla language is now in the hands of the Cahuilla people themselves, who, armed with the excellent data which Seiler’s and Hioki’s scholarship provides, can now begin the serious task of revitalizing their ancestral language by incorporating it into their daily lives and the lives of their children. The Cahuilla language is a member of the Uto-Aztecan language family. This dictionary completes the description of the language which has been carried out by Professor Seiler over many years, and facilitates access to his Cahuilla Texts (1970 University of Nebraska), as well as many illustrations of points discussed in Cahuilla Grammar (1977 Malki Museum Press) and an abundant resource for comparative Uto-Aztecan Studies.
