IntelliSparx Launches Kumeyaay Place Names Project


San Diego based interactive agency IntelliSparx launches interactive map for the Kumeyaay Place Names Project.

San Diego, CA, November 28, 2010 --(PR.com)-- IntelliSparx, a San Diego based digital interactive agency recently launched the Kumeyaay Place Names Project at www.kumeyaaymapping.com. IntelliSparx donated a portion of its profit to the Kumeyaay Place Names Project to help kick-start the efforts of the Kumeyaay Research Team.

This website features an interactive map of Kumeyaay (Iipay/Tipay aka Diegueno) Place Names. Their goal was to gather invaluable information from some of remaining Kumeyaay speakers and from hard-to-access archival and printed resources and then to present it in a form that is accurate and available to many.

Financial supporters include: the Sycuan Institute for Tribal Gaming, the University of California Humanities Research Institute, the Endangered Language Fund, Intellisparx and Larry Banegas of Kumeyaay.com.

“Having worked with Kumeyaay.com, we had a great opportunity to become the active provider for the Kumeyaay Place Names Project. The KPP team has done terrific research in their respective fields and it was a pleasure putting their studies in to a web based application so that the Kumeyaay History would become a part of the web for future education and research studies,” said President of IntelliSparx, Eric Wohl.

Few concepts resonate more strongly than “place” in indigenous studies today. Place names describe landforms and also show a close connection with nature and tell timeless stories associated with land.
