In light of the upcoming UN International Decade of Indigenous Languages, Cultural Survival announces its virtual conference "Restoring and Protecting our Native Languages and Landscapes." At Cultural Survival, we recognize that Indigenous Peoples themselves must lead the revitalization efforts and claim ownership of their languages and cultures. This conference will equip individuals working at the community level with tools for language revitalization by joining leaders from different parts of the globe working on these issues.
On October 5-7, 2021, Cultural Survival will host a 3-day virtual conference that will convene conversations and knowledge-sharing around best practices for the revitalization and strengthening of endangered Indigenous languages and the traditional environmental knowledge carried within them. To make this event more accessible, registration will be free of charge.
Joining the conference will be Indigenous linguists, educators, and practitioners working in the field of Indigenous language revitalization. Discussions will demonstrate why language revitalization and biodiversity protection are inextricably linked, and present methodologies, practical ideas, and solutions for the best ways to carry forward the work of revitalizing, protecting, and sustaining language, culture, and land holistically.
