Canadian Indigenous Languages and Literacy Development Institute (CILLDI), Canada

The Canadian Indigenous Languages and Literacy Development Institute is an intensive, annual summer school held at the University of Alberta, Canada.

CILLDI aims to train First Peoples speakers and educators in endangered language documentation, linguistics, language acquisition, second language teaching methodologies, curriculum development, and language-related research and policy-making.

The CILLDI mandate is the preservation of endangered languages by developing research skills and teaching resources in the speakers of these languages themselves.

The 11th Annual CILLDI Summer School will be held from 5-23 July 2010.
