Libraries Are For Everyone: Sahaptin

Dean of Libraries Rebecca L. Lubas at the James E. Brooks Library, reached out to me with the Sahaptin #LAFE translation. She had reached out to the illustrious Dr. Virginia Beavert for the translation. How wonderful is that?

The literal translation is “everybody’s library.”

Sahaptin is the language of the Yakama nation. And I am deeply honored that these signs will be shared with the Yakama Nation Library.

Thank you both, Dr. Beavert and Rebecca, for making these signs possible!

A NOTE: My entire blog here is under a Creative Commons Attribute/Share Alike license – so know that I both want and encourage
everyone to download, share, modify, and use my work.

I also want to reiterate what I’ve stated in the past since I can’t make it an exception within the license: I do not want my name (given or business) on my minimalist art. It sort of ruins the clean lines and the message. Just don’t tell people that you’re the creator – I’m fine with you say that it’s by “an awesome Punk Rock Book Jockey blogger” if you can’t recall either of my names. Or write by Hafuboti on the back in pencil if you’re worried about it. Seriously.

I plan on putting this note on the bottom of all of my Libraries Are For Everyone posts so if you’ve read the above paragraph once, then you won’t need to again (unless you really want to).
