‘Where There is a WIL, There is a Way!’

A new website is bringing together speakers of different endangered indigenous languages. Wiki for Indigenous Languages (WIL) is looking to become a new resource for teaching, documenting, and revitalizing endangered languages. The WIL only has one language available at the moment, Yaqui, but has place holders for seven other languages that are being developed soon.

It was started by a professor of world arts and cultures and advocate for endangered languages, David Delgado Shorter. The idea behind the website is to create a space for speakers of a language to be able to edit and add information about their language. For learners or others curious about the languages, it will provide a resource for the language as it lives today. The site is complete with games, dictionaries, pronunciation guides, grammar basics, and workbooks, among other great resources for learning a language.
