“Preserving A Dying Language,” a video archive documenting the Teton County Library’s current exhibition, project “Netniintoonoo, “The Place Where We Live,” is featured on today’s New York Times’ online edition. The photography exhibition, created by students of the Arapaho School as part of the Language Revitalization Project on the Wind River Reservation, reflects the school’s efforts to keep this native language from extinction. First and 6th grade students, families and elders used black-and-white film to capture images of their community to create an Arapaho photo dictionary.
