SAN MARCOS —- The Pauma Band of Luiseno Indians awarded $40,000 to the California Indian Culture and Sovereignty Center at Cal State San Marcos, in support of a project to preserve the Luiseno language. The Luiseno Language Preservation Project creates technology-based language learning devices that will preserve and teach the Luiseno language to tribal members. A collective $50,000 grant will be shared between CSUSM and Palomar College’s American Indian Studies Department, with the center at CSUSM leading the project. Palomar College collaborators will host instructional workshops for Pauma tribal members on the use of the language technology and devices.
