Shawnee Tribe Gaming Commission Compliance Officer


Summer Intern Position

Shawnee Language Immersion Program

The Shawnee Language Immersion Program (SLIP) is in the process of building the Shawnee language resources in on the Indigenous Languages Digital Archive (ILDA) database. ILDA allows us to consolidate language materials from all resources that relate to Shawnee language also providing Shawnee citizens with a functioning online dictionary, audio, and other valuable grammar knowledge.  However, it will take countless hours to input the resources currently in our possession to the ILDA database (by our estimates, 1-3 years).  We have thus created paid summer internships for 3 college level tribal citizens, one intern from each of the federally recognized Shawnee Tribes.


Intern Job Description:


The duties of the interns will be strictly data entry and they will report directly to the Tribal Linguist. The intern will train, under the direction of the Tribal Linguist, how to properly input data to the ILDA database from our language resources.  The Tribal Linguist will review and approve all entries before finalizing them in the database.  Workdays will be Monday through Thursday, 6 hours per day for a total of 24 hours per week during business hours of 9 AM to 5 PM.  Internship will begin on May 23, 2022, and end August 5, 2022, for a total of 11 weeks with 10 paid working weeks and 1 unpaid week for personal leave.




  • Must be a member of one of the 3 Shawnee Tribes.
  • Must be currently enrolled college level student at accredited university.
  • Must be familiar with Microsoft Office with emphasis to Excel spread sheets.
  • Must have internet availability. 
  • Must have a laptop or desktop computer.
  • Must be able to follow directions and pay attention to detail.

The interns will be paid $10.00 per hour for each hour worked.  Upon satisfactory completion of the internships, the interns will also be rewarded a $3000.00 scholarship toward their tuition and fees.
