I can put this question out in the next newsletter of the *Society for the
Study of the Indigenous Languages of the Americas*. One might contact:
Arok Wolvengrey at the First Nations University of Canada.
Once a language has reached a point at which local speakers cannot agree on
the meaning of its writing system, or the language never acquired an
accepted and integrated writing system, challenges abound for getting a
growing encyclopedia going in the language.
Linguists do a great job of understanding indigenous languages: use,
disuse, structure, and endangerment, but we need to try to bridge the gap
between linguists' knowledge and tech-savvy, open-source communities.

The UK has a few smaller languages - Welsh, Scots, Gaelic and others. We've
not done much outreach with these before, but recently Robin Owain and
others of the Welsh Wikipedia - Wicipedia Cymraeg (
) - has run some events with funding
WMUK. A breakdown of the largest event at the National Eisteddfod is at
