“Starting in 1996, Advocates for Indigenous California Language Survival (AICLS) has partnered with the University of California, Berkeley to run the one-week biennial Breath of Life program for California Indians, now called the Breath of Life Institute. The objective is to assist the participants in exploring and utilizing the vast archives of California Indian languages and materials for their own efforts in language reclamation.”
