With the help of elders, educators, and tribal councils of the Klallam Tribes at Elwha, Port Gamble, and Jamestown, Washington, and Becher Bay on Vancouver Island, Timothy Montler has compiled a comprehensive dictionary of the Klallam language. It includes over 9,000 entries, a brief grammatical sketch, and numerous indexes, along with a wealth of cultural information. Klallam is the language of the people whose ancestors lived at Tse-whit-zen, the largest archaeological site in Washington. It is an endangered language being revived through the efforts of the Klallam Language Program. While there are fewer than a dozen speakers of Klallam as their first language, there are hundreds who have gone through tribal language programs in the past twenty years.
Timothy Montler is a professor at the University of North Texas. He is the author of many articles and books on Native American languages.
