Ashley Houghton is a printmaker and founder of Language Tools Residency through her press, Player 1 Press. Language Tools Residency is a space for artists, writers, and educators who speak endangered languages to publish language tools, games, books and reimagine/question how we learn languages.
Ashley, a citizen of the Mvskoke Nation, was inspired to create such a space after beginning to learn the Mvskoke Language. The funds provided by CAC's MAKER Grant will go towards the completion of a Mvskoke Word Game that she developed with the help of the Mvskoke Language Program.
