Module 1 – 2: Media and Indigenous Languages

After the readings this week, I was curious to investigate ways that technology could help retain culture (or at least parts of it). I had read about the loss of many Indigenous languages as the younger generations were no longer using them. Fortunately there are now groups that are emerging to help revitalize them.

I came across the CBC’s `Unreserved’ with Rosanna Deerchild episode titled,  “Learn 4 words in 4 Indigenous languages in 4 videos” where four individuals are sharing their Indigenous languages with others.
