Biographical history

The British Columbia Indian Language Project was undertaken from 1973 to 1976 in Victoria. Project organizers included Randy Bouchard, and those involved in the various studies included Nancy J. Turner, Randy Bouchard, and Dorothy I.D. Kennedy. Many linguistic and ethnographic works were produced under the Project's auspices, including word lists, studies of dialects, and studies of Indian people's uses of wildlife. The Project's scope was later expanded to the study of Indians in the Pacific Northwest.
