    • Historical information: This collection, ongoing in its development, contains materials created by team members participating the Iquito Language Documentation Project (ILDP). The ILDP was designed and launched in 2001 by Lev Michael and Christine Beier. In 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018, field research was carried out by Beier and/or Michael, in many years working with additional team members. In 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, and 2010, additional research was carried out independently by student members of the ILDP research team. Participant information is provided in a document in File Bundle 2014-18.001.
      Beier and Michael first became involved with the Iquito language and people in 2001 when, through contacts in regional indigenous organizations, they learned of the Iquito community’s interest in working with linguists to document and revitalize Iquito. Both graduate students at UT Austin at the time, Beier and Michael visited the Iquito community of San Antonio de Pintuyacu in 2001 to determine in what ways they could contribute the community’s objectives. Based on the enthusiastic response of Iquito speakers and other community members, they created the ILDP as a long-term, team-based collaborative documentation, description, and revitalization project.
      In 2001, a reasonable estimate of the state of vitality of Iquito was: approximately 25 fluent native speakers, all over 55 years of age; and approximately 25 passive or partial speakers, all over 30 years of age. In 2018 a reasonable estimate was: about 10 fluent native speakers, all over 70 years of age.
      Since its inception, work on the ILDP has been funded by: the Endangered Language Fund (2002 to 2003); the HRELP Endangered Languages Documentation Programme (MDP-0042; 2003 to 2006, with Dr. Nora England as PI); NSF/NEH DEL Fellowships for Beier (FN-230216) and Michael (FN-230217; 2015 to 2016), and Cabeceras Aid Project (2001 to present).
      Complete information on the ILDP’s participants can be found in File Bundle 2018-14.001.
      Historical and descriptive documents pertaining to the founding and development of the ILDP can be found in File Bundle 2014-18.002.
