Event description
Indigenous Language Revitalization in North America: Indigenous Language Revitalization in North America: A View from the Field

About this Event

All around the world indigenous languages are endangered, disappearing, or already dormant. There are however also strong efforts to strengthen and revive them, efforts driven by both community members and outsiders, from grassroots to academia, and from unfunded to seven-digit budgets, including everything in between. Come take a walk through the field of indigenous language revitalization and view several disparate efforts in North America with a worker in the field

Dr. Craig Kopris has nearly three decades of training and experience in language description and endangered language revitalization, with a particular emphasis in Iroquoian languages. He has been a consultant with indigenous language activists and officials from several nations in the U.S. and Canada, teaches classes for the Canadian Indigenous Languages and Literacy Development Institute, and served as linguist for Carnival Films' Jamestown series.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A NEW LOCATION FOR NML PROGRAMS. THIS IS A FREE EVENT WITH FREE PARKING.
