Archie Thompson

( Robert Gauthier, Los Angeles Times / January 17, 2013 )
Archie Thompson, pictured in January 2013, was the last of about 20 Yurok elders who helped revitalize the Yurok language over the last few decades, after academics in the 1990s predicted it would be extinct by 2010. Thompson died March 26 at age 93.
