The Suysun Papers of
Dr. Platón Vallejo
Damian Bacich is giving Martha McGettigan’s presentation about the Suysun language and that includes a powerpoint and spoken presentation.
The lecture is based on the extensive archives of Platon Vallejo and his study of the Suysun language. He was probably the last fluent speaker of the language having studied and spoke it most of his life.
