Language Preservation Technologies
Language plays an integral part of a tribe's culture and history. In order to maintain the cultural richness for generations, tribes are searching for ways to preserve or revive their languages. Recent research has shown that over one half of the world's 6,000 languages could be extinct in the next 100 years. During this informative, hands-on class, you'll learn strategies to preserve your tribe's language and prevent language death.
In this two-day class, we'll equip you with the tools you'll need to undertake this monumental project. You'll learn about the latest in language preservation technologies and get hands-on practice in employing basic language preservation techniques. Explore the pros and cons of several available technologies so that you can make an informed decision about which to employ.
