Title: Circle of Indigenous Languages website: Build it and they will come

Description: In this session, I will share the background and planning required to digitize, catalogue, and categorize Indigenous language audio and video recordings. Some of the materials that were categorized have been uploaded in audio clips to the Circle of Indigenous Languages website. The audio recordings are shared with public access for learners or students of the Cree language to have access to to support their learning. We have purposefully not translated nor transcribed the audio recordings to have learners seek out a mentor/fluent speaker to work with them in learning the language. The website has the capacity to include more languages across SK and Canada; we currently have materials n the Cree, Saulteaux, Michif and English languages with a variety of topics covered.

Presenter: tānsātawitha kīthawāw …Charlotte Ross was born and raised as a nīhithaw-iskwīw and has been residing in nēhiyaw territory for over 25 years. She is a mother of three young men and loves her current role as a PhD student in the Indigenous Language Revitalization program through the University of Victoria. Charlotte’s academic background includes a BA Honours in Native Studies and a Master’s degree in Adult Education; however, her most prized teachings have been from the many Elders that she has been blessed to work with across Saskatchewan. Her role as an Indigenous Languages Consultant in the website development, cataloguing and categorizing has been seamless moving between all three aspects and working as part of a team. Language documentation and preservation is critical to the field of Indigenous language revitalization as we move toward embracing technology to support our language learning. hiy hiy kinanāskomitināwāw
