Yu Lha dreams of preserving her people’s customs, culture, and language by creating a system to capture Khroskyabs in written form. Yu Lha (Yi Na) is a linguistics student at the University of Oregon. Her passion for language resonated with her English teachers who pursued options for her to continue her education in the US.
