About This Site

The people whose voices you hear on this site are elders, scholars, poets, authors, teachers, language activists, community activists. They are, or have been, deeply engaged in the strengthening of indigenous languages and knowledge. It was a privilege to talk with them.

Here the voices of these participants speak for themselves though transcripts will be added eventually. The conversations from which these clips are taken covered a wide variety of topics. They occurred during a Social Sciences and Health Research-funded research project which sought to explore how indigenous languages and knowledges can shape our understandings of concepts like globalization and citizenship, and of what it means to live together in this world.

Hopefully these conversations will make a small contribution to the work of supporting and maintaining indigenous languages and knowledge and to the debate about what counts as an indigenous language. Please participate, add your comments, and enjoy!
