Creating a Digital Learning Space for Indigenous Language Revitalization

Continued employment of indigenous language revitalization experts to develop online courses.

Due to COVID 19, The Northwest Indian Language Institute’s (NILI) annual Summer Institute (SI) for Indigenous language teachers and learners at the University of Oregon was cancelled, eliminating FTE for humanities faculty and ending the 22-year run of an educational program designed to boost language revitalization. SI typically hosts 50+ participants from around the nation and staffs 12-15 university and tribal faculty. The event is adapting by moving online. Building on our prior experiences in online education and years of delivering effective face-to-face training, NILI will create quality, online learning experiences for endangered language practitioners, and in so doing maintain a unique aspect of the linguistic and cultural heritage of America. We will form a team of university and tribal faculty to adapt 6-8 existing courses and develop 3-4 new courses to complete a full range of offerings that can be delivered as year-round courses and in conjunction with Summer Institutes.
