UAlberta launches resource supporting Indigenous language revitalization

The University of Alberta’s Supporting Indigenous Language Revitalization (SILR) initiative has launched a new resource for Indigenous language revitalization. Towards Indigenous Language Revitalization: An Informative Resource highlights the significance of Indigenous language learning and includes key information such as dialects and language structures, oral traditions, and the importance of collective effort. The resource is designed for use in several different contexts: Educators, for example, are encouraged to use the resource when evaluating, creating, or improving educational programs;, while postsecondary analysts and policy developers can use the resource to identify practical approaches to support revitalization efforts.
