Sample text

See the discussion in Marlett (2008c). 67 See Marlett (2006) for a very brief introduction. 48 1: Introduction should stop speaking their own language. The Seris have always been proud to put on display those outsiders who have made some advances in learning the language, and outsiders are encouraged to learn and use the language. 3 Use of the language Communication between members of the Seri community is almost always in Seri, in all domains with two major exceptions. One of these is the formal school system, in which materials and instruction is almost universally in Spanish.

No rites or practices by the Seris would seem to really justify the use of the term in this context. Other items sometimes claimed by outsiders to be sacred to the Seris include the ironwood tree, the leatherback turtle, and the elephant tree. These and many other animals and plants have had special significance in the culture, but the designation “sacred” still seems inappropriate. It is also incorrect, as has sometimes been alleged in popular articles as well as Bowen & M. , pages not numbered).
