ONLINE – Dakota and Ojibwe Languages Revitalization Symposium
Thursday, February 24–Friday, February 25
The Minnesota Indian Affairs Council’s Language Revitalization Working Group, partnering with the Minnesota Humanities Center, is hosting a Dakota and Ojibwe Languages Symposium. The goal of the symposium is to bring people working in Dakota and Ojibwe languages revitalization together. We will celebrate successes, highlight what is currently going on in the field, help shape future language revitalization efforts, and elevate the visibility of Indigenous languages throughout the state of Minnesota. By bringing people together, we hope this symposium serves as an opportunity for individuals to network with other Dakota and Ojibwe language professionals.
