Online Cree Dictionary

I just wanted to share the link to the Online Cree Dictionary. If your library is involved in supporting the preservation and revitalization of Aboriginal languages, please consider linking to this resource. If not, how about starting today?

Endangered Language Fund

The Endangered Language Fund

“was founded ten years ago with the goal of supporting endangered language preservation and documentation projects. Our main mechanism for supporting work on endangered languages has been funding grants to individuals, tribes, and museums. ELF’s 97 grants have promoted work in over 30 countries and have seen a wide range of projects, from the development indigenous radio programs in South Dakota, to recording of the last living oral historian of the Shor language of western Siberia, to the establishment of orthographies and literacy materials to be used by endangered language teaching programs all over the world.” (text taken directly from the website) 

I stumbled on this site while doing one thing that I love…surfing!! Anyhow, not only do they have a 2009 Call for Proposals, they also have a nice list of resources on Indigenous language revitalization and a language archive.
