Dedication to language revitalization
Roberto Múkaro Borrero spent two decades surveying historical documents and piecing together fragments of written texts to create a new, comprehensive Taino language dictionary.

And Alaina Tahlate is using what she learned from hours of recordings and hundreds of documents as she races to preserve the language of Oklahoma’s Caddo Nation that has only two fluent speakers remaining.

Join Native America Calling to speak with these two passionate language scholars about the dedication it takes to make a difference.

Guests on Native America Calling
Roberto Múkaro Borrero (Taíno), kasike of the Guainía Taíno Tribe and president of United Confederation of Taíno People

Alaina Tahlate (Caddo), language preservationist for the Caddo Nation of Oklahoma
