Free Native American Fonts

The Indigenous Language Institute has partnered with Languagegeek to produce free fonts and free keyboard layouts which try to cover all of the characters (alphabetical letters/Syllabics) necessary for writing Native American languages. Go here and check it out, then backtrack to the Indigenous Language Institute's website for more cool language stuff!

These materials will help maintain language integrity and transmission among tribal nations. They make it easier to record stories, songs, and other ideas -- and to create new ones. This is important stuff in a world that is favoring English more and more. Help keep other languages alive by learning and using them, and by pointing other folks to these fonts.
