KU Professor Works to Preserve Kiowa Language
After Native Americans were moved to reservations, many children were sent to boarding schools and punished if they spoke anything but English. Indigenous languages are now at risk of dying. But one uniquely qualified professor at the University of Kansas is working to preserve the difficult Kiowa language. C.J. Janovy, of KCUR Radio, reports for the Kansas News Service.
