Acting Responsibly: Linguists in American Indian Communities.
Bigler, Gregory; Linn, Mary S.
Practicing Anthropology, v21 n2 p34-38 Spr 1999
Linguists working with endangered American Indian languages must realize that fieldwork is a cooperative venture, requiring that control be relinguished to the community. The relationship with the tribe must be negotiated, and linguists must return something concrete to the community in terms of language revival. Working in language teams that include community stakeholders fully involves the community. (TD)
