SAN MARCOS: Video games to help teach native language

By DEBORAH SULLIVAN BRENNAN, North County Times | March 10, 2011

Hand-held video games may help Luiseno tribal members restore their traditional language, as tribal members and local professors devise a novel approach to teach the ancient language on Nintendo devices.

The Pauma Band of Luiseno Indians has provided a $50,000 grant to Cal State San Marcos’ California Indian Culture and Sovereignty Center, and Palomar College’s American Indian Studies Department, to create Luiseno language cartridges for the video games.

The cartridges will be distributed to members of the tribe’s seven bands in Riverside and San Diego counties.
