Greetings, fellow language enthusiasts and lovers of Hopi culture.
In the spirit of unity and the preservation of our rich linguistic heritage, we come together to express our heartfelt gratitude to the incredible individuals and organizations that have contributed to the creation of the Online Hopi Dictionary. This digital repository stands as a testament to the collaborative efforts aimed at safeguarding and promoting the beauty of the Hopi language.
First and foremost, we extend our deepest appreciation to the Hopi community, whose commitment to preserving their language has been the driving force behind this monumental project. Without the dedication and passion of Hopi speakers and educators, this invaluable resource would not exist.
Our journey to compile and share the linguistic treasures of the Hopi language has been significantly enriched by the wisdom and guidance of Hopi elders. Their oral traditions and linguistic insights have played a pivotal role in ensuring the authenticity and cultural richness of the Online Hopi Dictionary. We honor their contributions and acknowledge the importance of passing down this linguistic legacy to future generations.
The collaborative efforts of linguists, researchers, and scholars have been instrumental in the development of the Online Hopi Dictionary. Their expertise has brought clarity to the intricacies of Hopi grammar, semantics, and phonetics, making this dictionary a reliable reference for both learners and researchers alike. We express our gratitude for their tireless dedication to the study and documentation of the Hopi language.
Additionally, we acknowledge the support and contributions of funding organizations and cultural institutions that have recognized the significance of preserving indigenous languages. Their investment in this project reflects a shared commitment to cultural diversity and the importance of linguistic preservation.
As we celebrate the launch of the Online Hopi Dictionary, let us come together to honor the collaborative spirit that has brought this project to fruition. It is a testament to the power of community, cultural appreciation, and the enduring legacy of the Hopi language.
Askwali/Kwa’kway, thank you, to all who have contributed to this remarkable endeavor. May the Online Hopi Dictionary serve as a beacon of knowledge, fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation for the beauty of the Hopi language for generations to come.
