Join the Aikuma Project for an evening of treasure language storytelling. This is a chance to celebrate treasure languages, share words and ideas in the language of your heart, and discover new ways to learn language.

Experience an evening of beauty and inspiration with storytellers from Laos and Eritrea who have made California their home, as well as one Ohlone storyteller who will deliver a tale in Chochenyo. As elders tell stories in their mother tongues, listen to local language champions interpret them into English.
