Twhulshootseed indian

Love poem translated into twulshootseed, the puyallup indian language. Whulshootseed is a south lushootseed dialect. The whulshootseed is another name for this language.

The Puyallup

The Puyallup try to conserve their language through revitalization programs, teaching them at school. It was estimated in 2005 that it remained only one woman aged 82 to speak whulshootseed. I am glad that my little poem has been translated in a so endangered language.
