  1. thank you for your recordings. My huttsi taught me a few words and a couple phrases. She passed away in 2004. My dad always told me to learn as much as I could from her because “we’re a dying race.” Would love to learn more. Any current links?

  2. I would love to be able to see the spelling too. It would help me remember, I think. Perhaps a request for future.
    Thank you, kindly for all you’ve done & continue to do, for all of us.
    ~In Solidarity
