AILLA proudly announces its newest collection, the Isthmus Zapotec Collection of Randi Moore. This collection of audio and video recordings made between 2012-2015 in three locations in southern Mexico's Isthmus of Tehuantepec: Juchitán de Zaragoza, La Ventosa, and Santa María Xadani. The materials are recordings made in the course of Dr. Moore's dissertation research on Isthmus Zapotec spatial language and cognition.

With great pleasure, we announce the opening of the Terrence Kaufman Collections at AILLA. In 2012 the Archive of the Indigenous Languages of Latin America (AILLA) was awarded the NSF grant BCS-1157867 "Archiving the Terrence Kaufman Collection," and the archive staff began the work of organizing, digitizing, ingesting and curating the vast assemblage of American indigenous language materials in the possession of Terrence Kaufman.
The deadline to submit a request to AILLA for a support letter for the NSF DEL grant is now Thursday, November 1, 2018. This revision is due to the NSF DEL submission deadline extension.
The deadline to request a support letter for any other grant or purpose due in September or October is still Wednesday, August 29, 2018.
