Saving Aboriginal Languages

Unknown - 2014
Rate this:
Duncan McCue profiles one native community's struggle to preserve their indigenous language - and the hard, often unheralded, work of individuals recognized as language keepers. Arvid Charlie is among the last generation raised speaking Hul'qumi'num, the Coast Salish language spoken by the Cowichan people in BC. Like most of the 88 aboriginal languages in Canada, Hul'qumi'num is teetering on the brink of extinction. For elders like Arvid, sharing and documenting the language is a race against time. Their work embraces new technologies so that the language, culture and teachings can be reawakened in younger generations.
