TheĀ California Language Archive (CLA) is a physical and digital archive for materials related to the Indigenous languages of the Americas, housed in the Survey of California and Other Indian Languages (founded in 1953) in the Department of Linguistics at the University of California, Berkeley. As of 2022, the CLA holds some 400 collections representing approximately 500 language varieties, including ones outside of the Americas represented in the projects of Berkeley linguists. The CLA’s core missions are documentation, preservation, and access and outreach.
