Northern Pomo Language


Northern Pomo, one of seven distinct Pomo Languages, was spoken in Northern California for thousands of years.  Because of conquest and colonization by European settlers and government language policies, the language is no longer fluently spoken.  The jano sho:jin language app is part of a project to archive and make available materials on the Northern Pomo Language.  These materials include voice recordings of Edna Campbell Guerrero and Elenor Stevenson Gonzales, both native speakers of Northern Pomo.   These materials would not exist without their patience, dedication, and hard work.  Here you can download the app for IOS or Android.
