Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 30, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta April M, 1174 THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD 9 Indian language preserved through B.C. lecture project KAMLOOPS, B.C. (CP) An Indian mother and son are bringing their native language back to life for their people and white students of Indian culture and legend. Selina Timoyakin, in her 60s, and Larry Pierre, 48, work as a team, their bond the Okanagan language. As they lecture, they attempt to bring alive their legends. They recently visited an an- thropology class at Cariboo Community College, bringing the body of Coyote to stalk the corridors. During the lecture, the two delivered the legend of Coy- ote, a crafty creature of the Creator, talked on the reli- gious significance of the win- ter dances and went over the spiritual and physical rebirth inherent in the traditional In- dian sweatbath. Mrs. Timoyakin and Mr. Pierre made the form of their lecture central to the content.' Mrs. Timoyakin delivers her talk in Okanagan; Mr. Pierre translates. Both lecture for the British Columbia Indian Language Project, a non-profit society working to preserve and re- vitalize British Columbia's disappearing Indian lan- guages. When not travelling, Mr. Pierre conducts oral and writ- ten language classes on his native Penticton reserve south of here. He uses a written Okanagan based on the English alpha- bet, but at the same time adapted to express all the complex Indian sounds. Mr. Pierre said in an inter- view that even five or six years ago many Indians were ridiculing attempts to give the Okanagan language a new birth. 'We're getting along well they said. 'So why bring back the Indian stuff." How many people are inter- ested and want to become in- volved? Mr. Pierre said this sudden interest is not neces- sarily progress. "All of a sudden language became important when money starts getting involved, when these big-shot citizens start digging into their pock- ets and coming up with dollar bills. "All of a sudden these mod- ern Indians figure 'We're go- ing to get on and now everybody wants to get in on the language." Randy Bouchard, a project linguist, said the money issue is sensitive because it leads to accusations that certain In- dians are selling their lan- guage. In the college, Mrs. Tim- oyakin, who couldn't speak. English until she was in her 20s, speaks only in Okanagan. .Mr. Pierre embellishes Coy- ote's story as it gets better. Coyote, is a good, but crafty creation, who did away with "people-devouring introduced the language to the people and put fish in the water in return for a maiden. When the end of time comes, Coyote will come back to the world to pass judg- ment. "All I have learned about Coyote is according to the old i people. And I believe the old people."

Ann Landers Dear Ann Landers: Two years ago, I was on the verge of a nervous breakdown because I couldn't get a night's sleep. My husband's snoring was getting louder and louder. I couldn't understand how he could sleep through that horrendous racket. One day a friend suggested something she had leaded in yoga class It solved the problem for her. It is called alternate-nostril breathing, and it works! Now when I say, "Honey, please do the breathing he closes one nostril with his thumb and breathes four times. Then he closes the other nostril and breathes four times. After five rounds, he is sound asleep and so am I.
