Module 1: Mi’kmaq Online


This website serves as a language preservation site whereby individuals can listen to and read various Mi’kmaq stories and words.  In addition, it also serves as a dictionary.  I believe it could act as a good resource for students and educators who are interested in the language.

This is an initiative that was created in 1997 as an electronic tool for Mi’kmaq language preservation.  Originally the goal of the non-profit organization was to create a CD-ROM that contained audio and text of songs, historical stories, and a dictionary of the Mi’kmaq language.  Advances in technologies have enabled the project to go entirely online.  The website hosts audio, image, and text files.
