About the Summit
The Language Summit is an inclusive convening about our shared language, inviting Iñupiaq and our community members, from wherever Iñupiat now reside.
The Language Summit will be a working summit, a time to build relationships and grow respect for our regions and local speech styles, knowing that we have more in common than we do different and that for the long term sustainability of our language, we all need one another. Some of the needs identified in advance of the Summit include:
A comprehensive survey of Iñupiaq speakers (the last one was 10 years ago)
The structuring of a master-apprentice program to provide a pathway for intermediate learners to go deeper in the language
The creation of an Inupiaq Institute, to continue efforts in a meaningful way
The creation of a Joint Commission for the Iñupiaq language
Note: The intended involvement for this convening is for those in the Inupiaq language community. Guests are welcome to observe, but priority for participation will be Inupiaq language community members.
