This was a message sent to the Kalmyk Brotherhood Society from the Smithsonian Folklife Festival:
Dear Smithsonian Folklife Festival Friends,
In celebration of International Mother Language Day on February 21, the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage has posted a new “Festival Photo Gallery” showcasing the many cultural experts who so generously shared their language revitalization efforts and cultural traditions as part of the One World, Many Voices: Endangered Languages and Cultural Heritage program at the 2013 Smithsonian Folklife Festival.
Visit the Festival Photo Galleries at http://www.festival.si.edu/2013/One_World_Many_Voices/galleries/asl.aspx and explore the many other resources featured on the One World, Many Voices website at http://www.festival.si.edu/2013/One_World_Many_Voices/index.aspx
We extend our sincere thanks to everyone who helped to make the One World, Many Voices: Endangered Languages and Cultural Heritage program possible through their invaluable support, advice, assistance, participation, and research.
