International Indigenous Language Policy Research Symposium

The purpose of the Symposium is to assemble researchers and educators
from Indigenous communities of the Americas who are concerned about
the preservation of Indigenous languages in the midst of rapidly
expanding global influences. Our aim is to facilitate an international
dialogue about policy issues that will foster a better understanding
of the unique challenges facing Indigenous communities in the
maintenance and survival of their respective languages. Our goal is to
explore the commonalities that will help build collaborative support
and advocacy of Indigenous language maintenance efforts by bringing
together scholars and advocates representing diverse language
