Taking Language Home: Ensuring the Survival and Maintenance of Indigenous Languages Beyond the Classroom
The 2013 theme, Taking Language Home is a simple statement but language workers understand the challenges and complexity of taking language home. The 2013 AILDI courses will focus on supporting efforts to bring language home. Courses will emphasize maintaining language in the family, household and landscape. Courses that focus on language immersion for the family, traditional ecological knowledge and revitalizing spiritual Indigenous traditions will support the continued effort to instill Indigenous language in its original space, the home.
Dates: June 3-28, 2013
