SENĆOŦEN language pictures

It was mentioned by some people during the Unicode meeting in Toronto that they would like to see more evidence of the SENĆOŦEN language in use. I have included here some photographs I took during my visit to the community of W̱JOȽEȽP (Tsartlip), as well as a scan or two from some books I picked up there.

Note especially the four characters: Ⱥ, Ȼ, Ⱦ (with diagonal stroke) and Ƚ (with bar).
