The direction of this research project is to familiarize the general public with the importance of indigenous language conservation and preservation, with the illustration of the Nimi'i puu (Nez Perce) language being the vehicle for study. The audience will learn the historical importance of the Nimi'i puu which directed the present condition of their language programs, as well as the success and setbacks that those programs have experienced in the course of their establishment. The future of the Nimi'i puu language will be addressed as well as responsibilities of the parties involved.
