Training— we partner with Indigenous communities and organisations to develop capacity in language documentation and revitalisation through the Documenting and Revitalising Indigenous Languages program. Our flexible training materials and practices ensure that the skills which people gain are used, retained and shared more widely within a community.
Resources— we disseminate information about conferences, funding opportunities, education and training programs, policies, publications, film, theatre, radio and television, news, and the methods and technologies needed to document, archive, revitalise and maintain indigenous languages.
Networking— we facilitate international networking through our active email discussion list, Facebook group, and Twitter profile, support for the Endangered Languages and Cultures blog, and links to other blogs and networks. Archived RNLD discussions are publicly accessible and searchable through the Linguist List.
Advocacy— we advocate on issues such as bilingual education, Indigenous literacy, language policies and recognition for Indigenous peoples, raise awareness through public events on occasions such as International Mother Language Day, and organize informal gatherings for linguists and community language activists.
DRIL workshop highlights
This month, we're highlighting workshops in Geraldton, WA and Mt Gambier, SA that DRIL trainers Margaret Florey and Emma Murphy ran in February and March 2014.
In February RNLD ran its first workshop at Irra Wangga Language Centre in Geraldton, WA. They held two lively days of training where four Masters and seven Apprentices dived into language learning and teaching, as well as building skills in linguistics and digital recording. The group is already planning follow up sessions.
In March RNLD ran its second workshop in Mount Gambier with the great team there who are working to reclaim Boandik. They started with several immersion sets and then recording the new language they learned to practice over the coming weeks. On the second day the language team began to settle into the various roles that best suit their interests and skills - as language hunters, teachers, and recording editors. They did some great strategic planning in the afternoon session and are ready to continue their language group sessions.
