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 This paper is written in Chinook Jargon as spoken and written in British Columbia as we can see in historical documents and as I have been taught (to the best of my ability of course).

Is “k” an upward or downward stroke?
k is a downstroke. All the consonants except for l and r are downstrokes.
