12th Annual Oklahoma Native American Youth Language Fair

None
8 a.m., Monday April 07
Every spring, the Oklahoma Native American Youth Language Fair (ONAYLF) brings together 600-800 students who are learning their Native languages. The Fair honors these students and their teachers by giving them an opportunity to publicly present their languages. The Fair celebrates language diversity in Oklahoma and the US. In addition to student and teachers, the Fair also involves the university community, tribal communities, families, and over 100 volunteers.

Students perform for elders and teachers who score the children on 1) amount of language used, 2) fluency, 3) spirit of the performance, and 4) stage presence. The top three performances in each age category receive a trophy that they can take back to their schools. Every child who participates receives a medal and a Fair T-Shirt, created by the winning artwork from the last year’s Fair.  More about our judges and the judging process.

If you are learning your language or passing on your language at home or in a classroom and have never come to the Fair, we invite you to the Fair. If you are just interested in knowing more about the beauty and diversity of Native languages in Oklahoma, please come by.  Your presence will support these dedicated youth and the continued use of all languages.
