Builds from the Introduction to Makah Language (MAKAH 121) foundation where speech was patterned in the moment. MAKAH 122 incorporates the past tense including functional words to slightly increase speech using words like but not limited to and, or, but, this, that, with, also. Furthermore, the use of past tense scenarios from select Makah historic incidents and traditional story examples will be used to enable learners to apply past tense to share stories from their own lives in Makah. This class may include students from multiple sections. (Elective)
