Language Symposium in Minnesota to take place May 16th & 17th

If you have an interest in language preservation there is an opportunity coming up soon you may want to take part in. The sixth annual Minnesota Indigenous Language Symposium will serve as a chance for elders, educators, higher-education students and practitioners to gather information on language-related issues. Topics to be discussed include technology, teacher training, teaching methods, community resources, curriculum development models, adult learning, evaluation and assessment.

The keynote speaker for the first day will be Wes Studi, language activist and board member of the Indigenous Language Institute, though you may know him better for his acting roles in Dances With Wolves, The Last of the Mohicans, The New World, and Avatar.

The symposium will provide an opportunity to pick up on language revitalization tips as well as to network with others involved in language preservation and revitalization.
Eni–gikendaasoyang (Center for Indigenous Knowledge and Language Revitalization), of the University of Minnesota Duluth, and the Grotto Foundation are hosting the symposium, which will take place at the Black Bear Resort & Casino, May 16th & 17th.
