NML had two exhibit tables on October 21, 2017. One was at the Maryland Foreign Language Association’s conference at Anne Arundel Community College. Pat Barr-Harrison and Greg Nedved represented the Museum and networked with World Language educators.
At the same time, Jill Robbins and Gary McCone shared the NML exhibits on Native American language at the 9th Annual American Indian Festival. Visitors to the table enjoyed playing the guessing game with the wooden blocks Gary had made. One side has a word which may have come from a Native American language. the other tells if it is of native origin, and the language family or tribal association of the word.
