Growing the Fire Within

Exploring Innovative and Successful Adult Language Learning Methods in Indigenous Communities in Canada and the US

Indigenous peoples have worked for decades to revitalize their languages. Much of the focus has been on children, but also critical are programs for the “missing generations” of adults who did not grow up with their Indigenous languages.

Leading scholars and practitioners of Indigenous language revitalization gathered at the University of Victoria in February 2020 to ask: How can we support Indigenous adults who are becoming new speakers of their languages?

A report on the gathering is coming soon.
