This study, conducted on the Crow Indian reservation in Southwest Montana, examined the incorporation of written Crow in teaching Crow language through a series of semi-structured interviews with Crow language teachers and others in the Crow language maintenance movement. The grounded theory qualitative approach yielded recommendations regarding the need for teacher training, for material development, for curriculum planning, and for expanded visibility of written language in the community. The study presents evidence to support an eclectic approach to Crow language teaching.
