Luiseño on Nintendo under Development

The Pauma Band of Luiseño Indians has made a USD 50,000 grant to develop video games for Luiseño (lui). The purpose of the games is be to encourage people to learn and use the language.

The software will run on Nintendo game devices and is planned to be ready by fall. The cartridges for the devices are being created by Thorton Media, Inc. (See also blog post RezWorld Demo – Task-based Language Instruction.)
