Ag ionnsachadh ''Ceiltis'' thar a' chuain - Learning ''Celtic'' across the ocean
Gabh mionaid agus thoir sùil air làrach-linn Indiana Celtic Community!
Tonight, we are meeting for our Irish language group in Bloomington, Indiana. I just want to talk about my friends there. I don't think many people in the Celtic countries know just how hard people work here for these languages. I have a friend and runs the Indiana Celtic Community. He has connected people from all over the state all by himself. Indeed, my friends and I help him sometimes, but he is usually on his own. I have another friend who is getting her degree from Indiana University in cultural anthropolgy. She is researching how people create identities as Celtic-Americans. And I hope she will write about people like her and I; people who are not Gaels but are just interested in the languages. I am curios if the Celtic countries look to the west much, across the ocean, for support. Yes? No?
Take a minute and check out the Indiana Celtic Community website!
