*April Laktonen Counceller, Ph.D.* (Alutiiq/Sugpiaq), Manager of Alutiiq
Language Program of Alutiiq Museum in Kodiak, Alaska will share the work of
their New Words Council and how it contributes to identity, healing,
resilience and community survival. In her presentation entitled
“Niugneliyukut - We are Making New Words” she will discuss the Alutiiq New
Words Council in Kodiak, Alaska, began in 2007 to address the lack of modern
terms in the Alutiiq language. Counceller will discuss the social context of
the New Words Council (NWC) within the Alutiiq heritage movement as well as
the value and meaning of the council to participants. Her
research, undertaken as part of a 2010 doctoral dissertation from the
University of Alaska Fairbanks, concludes that the value of the NWC goes
beyond new terms, contributing to identity, healing, resistance, and
community survival. She will also discuss practical aspects of new words
creation in Kodiak such as common methods employed by Elders, meeting
structure, and etymological breakdown of selected new terms.
     Professor Keola Donaghy

*Keola Donaghy*, Assistant Professor of Hawaiian Studies, University of
Hawai’i Hilo will share Hawaiian experiences in developing online language
environment and how the community is affected by this medium. For the past
twenty-five years advocates of the Hawaiian language face many challenges in
their efforts to revitalize and reestablish Hawaiian as a language of the
home, school, and community. With the increasing emphasis of technology in
the school, business and home, the creation and implementation of new
lexicon to address the use of technology has been a priority. The Hale
Kuamo‘o at ‘Aha Pnana Leos has led the development of new lexicon and tools
for Hawaiian speakers, and their joint publication of “Mmaka Kaiao”, a new
Hawaiian language lexicon, has been indispensible in these efforts. He will
provide some background into the formation and operation of the kmike
hualelo (The Hawaiian Lexicon Committee), how they create new lexicon, the
issues that they face in implementing new words, and how they are used in
technology through localized applications, both binary and web-based.
