We are committed to supporting the language learners and champions across Turtle Island who are learning and helping revitalize Indigenous languages within their communities.
Integral to Indigenous identity, traditional language revitalization efforts are an important aspect of self-determination. Language plays a critical role in the overall wellbeing of Indigenous Peoples — it’s how we share knowledge, communicate ideologies and connect spiritually.
The aim of this initiative is to co-develop alongside Indigenous peoples and communities the resources needed to lead our own language revitalization efforts.
Indigenous Peoples are equipped to lead in reclaiming, revitalizing, maintaining and strengthening traditional languages. This initiative will focus on identifying and providing the resources needed to build out the capacity, as well as remove barriers to success.
