Shayleena’s dream is to teach the Wailaki language through the use of social media. She will share information on a Wailaki Facebook page with a word of the day, traditional stories, prayers and everyday purposes of the language.
"In our Wailaki classes at the high school, we get to learn a lot about being Wailaki, just through the language. I want other Wailakis to feel how good it feels to learn the language and how close we feel to our ancestors through the language." -Shayleena
