Deaf American Indian History, Culture, and Language

June 18th @ 4–6pm (PST) — Presenter: Linda Carroll

Sign language interpreters are often placed in a position to interpret for people of diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds. This webinar will provide interpreters with the extralinguistic knowledge needed to interpret for those of American Indian heritage as the presenter, a descendant of Aniwiya of Wolf Clan (Cherokee), shares the history of her culture through literature, ASL, and American Indian sign language.

About the Presenter:

Linda J. Carroll, CDI, began her career as a certified deaf interpreter in 1978, became a mentor in 1980, and has served as an interpreter education specialist with Sorenson since 2015. In addition to providing mentoring for both SCIS interpreters and Sorenson VIs, she helps with developing and presenting webinars and workshops. Linda is nationally certified with over 30 years of experience interpreting in various settings ranging from community to legal based. Along the path, she began mentoring both hearing and Deaf interpreters with various skill ranges. When she was president of the Intertribal Deaf Council (1998-2002), Linda wrote the foreword in “Step into the Circle: The Heartbeat of American Indian, Alaska Native, and First Nations Deaf Communities.”
