|Meeting Description:||The American Indian Language Development Institute (AILDI) at the University of Arizona is hosting a national conference on Indigenous languages on June 17 and 18, 2013, ‘Re-visiting the State of Indigenous Languages.’ The purpose of the conference is to re-assess and re-evaluate the status of Indigenous languages. The conference will address three key questions related to the vitality of US Indigenous languages: where have we been, what do we know and where are we going? These questions will be applied to the Native American Language Act, language documentation and pedagogical trends. The conference provides an opportunity to make a critical examination of the history of Indigenous language vitality, existing documentation and the various methodologies that have been adopted and practiced in an effort to save these languages.|
