LEARNING NAVAJO

This link provides a complete list of the texts and learning guides available to all those interested in learning or studying this language. For the beginner I recommend purchasing Alan Wilson's Breakthrough Navaho – An Introductory Guide. For those looking for something a little more advanced Wilson's Speak Navajo: Intermediate would also be of great use. Both are available through Audio-Forum. Also recommended is the New Oxford Navajo-English Dictionary and anything written by Robert Young and William Morgan Snr.

Native American Language Services – This organisation is aimed at arresting the decline of Native American languages, including Navajo. It provides a fee-based service to restore and revitalise Native American language. Considering that many such languages are rapidly becoming endangered, this is quite a useful resource.
