Notes on courses:
Introductory Navajo Grammar: An introduction to linguistics and the structure of Navajo verbs
Structure of Lower Tanana: It may seem strange, but this is probably the most important course that we're offering this year. Lower Tanana is a Northern Athabaskan Language spoken on the Tanana River in Alaska. This course gives students the opportunity to study a language that is similar to Navajo, leading to a deeper understanding of linguistics and the Navajo language itself.
Teaching Navajo: Techniques and strategies of teaching the language
Advanced Research: Topics and techniques in advanced research in Navajo linguistics
