Language as Community Engagement
Online, October 25 at 3:00 PM (ET)
These sessions are offered free of charge to tribes and Native American, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander non-profit organizations.
Community engagement is getting the “buy-in” from the community to support language revitalization. This webinar focuses on the value, the levels of community involvement, and the process of educating and getting support on our language revitalization efforts through grassroots actions. Presenter Cree Whelshula (enrolled member of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe; raised Colville) is the Training and Technical Assistance Director for the Native Language Community Coordination (NLCC) Center and serves as in-house expert on native language revitalization efforts, second language acquisition, and best teaching practices.
