30563 Indigenous language Revitalization: Policies, Movements, Pedagogies - OLLI Scholar - New   NEW!

In this course we will discuss the social, political, and economic forces that have and continue to displace Indigenous languages. Reviewing the social and individual effects of language loss help us understand why it’s important to bring languages back. Finally, we will learn from the language revitalization efforts in the United States and around the world, and even try our hand at learning some Ojibwe and Mixtec.
