The Kalapuya peoples are the original inhabitants of the South Santiam basin and beyond. Many Kalapuya are now members of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde and the Confederated Tribes of the Siletz Indians.
Decades of effort to document the Kalapuya language have resulted in the recent publication of the Kalapuya Dictionary. A first run of the 4 volume set was distributed to key individuals and institutions, including K-12 schools and universities. Now, organizers need help raising funds to print additional copies.
You can support their efforts directly by contributing to the GoFundMe campaign to print additional copies of the dictionary here.
