I tried Chinuk and got nothing. When I tried Chinook there were some 
hits, the first being to the Duployan Script (the subject of shorthands, 
missionaries, and syllabaries is worth a beer on its own), which 
wouldn't be of the slightest use. When I clicked on the "sources" field 
I see lots of Omniglot and Ethnolog and ISO 639 and Glottolog and OLAC 
and UNESCO links. Nothing useful.

But none to the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, which is the 
recognized authority for modern Chinuk, and oddly enough, how I learned 

I also tried Abenaki and got another set of useless links to ISO639:3 
code points. Nothing pointing to either the Odenak or Becancour 
Reserves, PQ, Canada, where Western Abenaki is taught, nor to Old Town 
or Indian Island or Pleasant Point, Maine, USA, where Eastern Abenaki is 

Next I tried Siksika, since I happen to have the Siksikai'powahsin 
series for Siksika language learners (and know the consultant to the 
project ), again, just a bunch of ISO 639 and similarly useless 
"sources". Nothing from Treaty 7, nor from the Montana located Tribe 
(Old Sun School, etc.).

While I wouldn't mind assistance, I'd prefer the assistance of someone 
working in the field of teaching a native language, or with ... what do 
we say ... a relationship with the community.
