Luiz Amaral (UMass) and Marcus Maia (UFRJ - Brazil) offered a workshop for Karajá teachers at the Hawaló village. This workshop is part of a pilot project to design pedagogical grammars in native Brazilian languages. During the workshop participants studied some relevant components of pedagogical grammars, explored different models of pedagogical grammars in Portuguese, English and Spanish, and designed 8 chapters for a Karajá grammar, including explanations, examples, texts, and exercises.
