How are you all?
My name is Joseph Dupris. I am from Chiloquin, Oregon. I am Klamath-Modoc, Big Pine Paiute, and Mnicoujou Lakota.
My mom is Kathy Hill and my dad is Joseph Dupris. My maternal grandmother is Margaret ‘Janie’ Haddock and my maternal grandfather is Gerald ‘Pat’ Hill. My paternal grandmother is Mona Grey, and my paternal grandfather is Benjamin Dupris.
I will be facilitating a 3-day language workshop this winter in Chiloquin, OR at the goos oLgi gowa community center. This workshop is made possible through the American Indian Language Development Institute and the Klamath Tribes. This workshop will be held with and for Klamath tribal members. The workshop will focus on learning terms in maqlaqsyals for everyday use.
Conversational practice of maqlaqsyals will be emphasized.

The workshop is supported with funds provided by The Klamath Tribes through KTRAP DIB funds.
