Trafford FirstVoices Publishing Program

The Trafford FirstVoices Publishing Program (TFVPP) will be accepting
applications for their Fall round of funding, beginning August 7th, 2006.
Application deadline is October 23rd, 2006.

Application packages can be downloaded at http://www.fpcf.ca/lang-tools.html

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
The Trafford FirstVoices Publishing Program (TFVPP) is offered to
Indigenous language communities lacking the financial resources and/or
support of outside agencies capable of funding the publication of books or
language teaching resources in their Indigenous language. Trafford
Publishing pledges C$1.6M to cover the costs of publishing 65 Indigenous
language books per year over ten years – a total of 650 new Indigenous
language publications.

PROGRAM SPONSORS
Trafford Publishing Inc. is an independent on-demand publishing house based
in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Trafford Publishing’s long-range
commitment to Indigenous language literacy follows a previous donation of
five Canadian Indigenous language children’s primers, plus the publication
of five Indigenous language books under contract to First Peoples’ Cultural
Foundation during 2005.

PROGRAM COORDINATORS
First Peoples’ Cultural Foundation is a Canadian Aboriginal non-profit
organization responsible for the development and administration of the
FirstVoices online Indigenous language resources. FirstVoices has
coordinated the publication of ten indigenous language books by Trafford
Publishing since 2003, and has been designated by Trafford to coordinate
the C$1.6M Indigenous language publishing pledge.
