One of the major projects during SYLAP has been the creation of children’s books. In the first two years of SYLAP, the books focused on the telling of traditional Shoshone stories by utilizing recordings from the Wick R. Miller collection.
Since 2011, the focus has been on Shoshoni language teaching. SYLAPers have created books that teach basic vocabulary and grammar to beginning Shoshoni language learners.
The pictures below come from books that have been published and distributed to Shoshone communities.
The books are not available for request or purchase, but video books are available at any time by clicking here>>.
