In August, I shared a very impressive Google resource highlighting fifty-five indigenous languages from around the world (see Google Creates Interactive On Indigenous Languages).
Today, they unveiled what looks to me to be an impressive lesson plan on indigenous languages: Exploring Indigenous Language Vitality.
In addition, they are “exploring the option to expand the story with additional Indigenous languages and speakers in the future.” Interested people can submit info here.
I think the lesson plan is excellent, their August interactive is a good one, and the idea to expand it is great. I just hope that the invitation to people to contribute is just one part, though, of a pro-active effort by them to reach out to more speakers of indigenous languages. It’s not like it would be that difficult to identify them since so many others are doing that work.
