Indigenous Language Revitalization

Resources to assist in Indigenous Language Learning, particularly for languages in close proximity to Queen's and/or taught at Queen's.

Databases with Language Materials

Note: The language materials in these databases are quite old (predominantly from the nineteenth century), and were written by missionaries. Many are in the form of translated biblical texts, or in "grammars" and dictionaries. Few are written by and for Indigenous people. Still, they have value in language revitalization.
