Neely and Palmer on Kiowa Language Ideology

I am happy to note the publication of a book chapter by my friends Amber A. Neely and Gus Palmer, Jr. Titled “Which Way Is the Kiowa Way? Orthography Choices, Ideologies, and Language Renewal,” their paper appears in the new volume  Native American Language Ideologies: Beliefs, Practices, and Struggles in Indian Country edited by Paul V. Kroskrity and Margaret C. Field  (Tucson: The University of Arizona Press, 2009). I was lucky enough to read the paper in manuscript and can report that it is a valuable and insightful account of language revitalization efforts among the Kiowa people of Oklahoma undertaken in light of contemporary work on language ideology and language politics in Indigenous communities.
