My name is John Lyon, I am a PhD student in Linguistics at UBC, and have been studying the Upper Nicola Okanagan language for 4 years now. I am originally from the States and live in Vancouver now. Sarah and I have worked together on the Okanagan language for 3 years now, and she agreed to translate several older, public domain films in the Okanagan language in the spring of 2011. My thinking was that these films could be used as intermediate/advanced-level learning resources, either for classroom or use in the home.
