Meet Our Sahaptin Language Professor

My name is Tuwalatin, Gregory Sutterlict, and I am from the Yakama Nation and Chehalis tribe.

The Yakama people call their language Ichishkin, and I enjoy working with it in any way that I can. I enjoy working with people of all ages and all levels on learning Ichishkin. I like to create new material and methods to help teach complicated linguistic concepts to the average person. I want to help start more events, programs and trainings that will help aid in the revitalization of Ichishkin.

Greg is a father of three and has been working for Heritage and Yakama Nation Head Start since NEED YEAR (currently reads as 2 ½ years — don’t want to have to keep updating). He is also involved with the University of Oregon in the Linguistics PhD program.
