The bilingual education bill passed by the Alaska legislature is summarized in this issue, as is the bilingual education law of Massachusetts. The Alaskan bill establishes a bilingual program of education for Native Alaskans and provides for the creation of the Alaskan Native Language Center at the University of Alaska. While the Massachusetts bill is aimed primarily at Spanish and French-speaking minorities, excerpts from the bill are contained in the newsletter since many of its provisions may be relevant to legislation which could be enacted in other States with Indian-language-speaking minorities. This issue describes several projects in progress, including a report on the development of materials in Cherokee by the Cherokee Bilingual Education Program in Oklahoma. Excerpts from B. Spolsky's paper "The Navajo Reading Study: An Illustration of the Scope and Nature of Educational Linguistics," K. Hale's "Some Questions about Anthropological Linguistics," and T. Klokeid's "An Introduction to the West Coast Language of Vancouver Island" are included. The issue also contains an annotated list of books and articles dealing with bilingualism and such languages as Algonquian, Cree, Navajo, Micmac, and Papago. (PM)
