International Decade of Indigenous Languages: Gikinoo’amaadiwinan (Learning from Each Other)

  • This event has passed.

The United Nations International Decade of Indigenous Languages serves as an urgent call for the world to take action to preserve, maintain and revitalize Indigenous languages.

This event explores how Canada’s public servants can support and promote Indigenous languages at work as an act of reconciliation. Learn from language bearers about how Indigenous languages contribute to cultural diversity, satisfy a fundamental human right, and act as pillars of cultural identity and well-being.

  • Richard Ejinagosi Kistabish, President, Minwashin, and North American representative to the UN Global Task Force for Making a Decade of Action for Indigenous Languages
