Oneida starting this fall

Oneida is an Iroquoian language spoken in Southern Ontario, New York State and Wisconsin. This course is designed for those who have little or no knowledge of the Oneida language. Participants will be introduced to the basics of the Oneida language and gain an understanding of the complexities and richness of Oneida traditions and culture. The structure of the Oneida language is remarkable, structurally it is all verbs which can function as nouns. Oneida word formation is a very extensive and complex system requiring many pieces that fit together like a puzzle, single Oneida verbs tend to be the equivalent of whole English clauses.

In this course, students will be assessed through weekly tasks, projects, quizzes, and a short essay.
