I had an interesting conversation today, with a professor of education from the University of Alberta, specializing in language and literacy learning (okay, it was my mother). She mentioned a program that the university runs, called the Canadian Indigenous Language and Literacy Development Institute. It is an annual program aiming to help “First Peoples speakers and educators in endangered language documentation, linguistics, language acquisition, second language teaching methodologies, curriculum development, and language-related research and policy-making.” Sounds good to me!
Has anybody had any experience with CILLDI? Does it sound like something we’d be interested in?
