Useful Sites for Linguists
There are a great many interesting linguistic sites on the Web. These few are the tip of the iceberg.
Sites of Siouanists
This sections lists the Web sites of some individuals who work (or have worked) with Siouan languages. This is not a comprehensive listing of the scholars presently working with Siouan languages. A better listing can be obtained from the SSILA membership list. Many Siouanists don't actually have Web presences, or at least not extensive ones. Professors tend to be more active in actual print.
The sites listed here vary quite a bit in nature. Some are very helpful. Others are pro forma sites, prepared by the institutions at which the individuals work, and contain little more than their name. A few of them are not actually personal sites, but are sites dedicated to projects in which particular individuals are prominent. Their names may not appear within the site with any special emphasis. In a few cases the site is dedicated to an individual of historical significance who is deceased.
Please note that the inclusion of a site here does not imply that the responsible person or persons warrants or warrant anything I have said in my site, or that I warrant anything they have said in theirs.
The most complete list of Siouanists available is the membership directory of SSILA, which lists specialties of Americanists who are members. The LSA also solicits information on members' specialties, though I am not aware that this information is published anywhere.
Sites About the Omaha and Ponca
Sites of Siouan-Speaking Native Americans
This is a brief list of more or less official Web sites for various Indian nations with Siouan languages. There is one notable (and regrettable) systematic exception. So far I haven't had the nerve to try to sort out the sites of the very numerous Dakota groups. Apart from this, not all Siouan groups are listed here, and not all groups seem to have Web pages. Because not all groups have sites with tribal sponsorship I have sometimes included other sites that seem to have a degree of official recognition. In particular, I have listed the Mni Sose Intertribal Water Rights page for a number of groups. Note that Mni Sose is obviously intended to represent Dakota MniN S^os^e (mnee SHOW-shay) 'Missouri [River]'.
Please note that the inclusion of a site here does not imply that the tribe in question, its representatives, or its members approve of or warrant anything I have said in my site.
