Native American, Hawaiian languages celebrated in summer schools

In July, about 20 7- and 8-year-olds will gather at a summer camp in the Hoopa Valley Indian Reservation in Northern California. They will sing songs, put on puppet shows and play games. And there will be one special rule: No English. This five-day summer camp is held almost entirely in Hupa, the native language of the roughly 4,000-member Hoopa Valley Tribe that mostly lives in that part of the state.
