Kaltash Wawa No. 9 – May 9, 2021

In this edition of the Kaltash Wawa come read the second part of Hansel and Gretel, a note on Mother’s Day, a note on the revitalization of Chinuk Pipa, and what readers have sent in: Bathroom Talk, a haiku, and some Chinuk Pipa practice!

The Kaltash Wawa is a Chinook Jargon (aka Chinuk Wawa) language ‘newspaper’ published in BC’s shorthand alphabet – Chinuk Pipa – once widely used to write Chinook Jargon and other Indigenous language in British Columbia. This paper is written in Chinook Jargon as spoken and written in British Columbia as we can see in historical documents and as I have been taught (to the best of my ability of course).
