Translation:  I appreciate and respect you in the Šmuwič Chumash Language


Translated by AIS faculty member, Judge Deborah Sanchez, this sound file is the first of many files translating the phrase,  I appreciate and respect you, into the languages that are spoken by members of the CSULB community.  Signs will be placed on campus with a QR code that you will be able to scan with your phone linking you to sound files like the one above where you can hear the phrase pronounced in each language.  The sound files will not be located on one webpage as each translation will be featured on the websites of various CSULB departments and programs where that particular language is appreciated, spoken or taught. “I appreciate and respect you” is the first collaborative effort of the Puvungna Arts Empathy Production Project. Link to information about this of sig saying, I appreciate and respect you
