Meeting Description:

The SILS conferences are designed to allow community, preschool, K-12, college,
and university indigenous language educators and activists through panels,
workshops, and papers to share methods and materials for promoting and teaching
indigenous languages.

NAU College of Education's Bilingual Multicultural Education program is
co-hosting the Fifteenth Annual Stabilizing Indigenous Languages Symposium along
with NAU's Navajo Language Program as one of the first conferences in NAU's new
High Country Conference Center on May 2 & 3, 2008. The conference theme is
''Language is Life: Strategies for Language Revitalization,'' and it is
co-chaired by Dr. Louise Lockard in the Educational Specialties Department and
Dr. Evangeline Parson Yazzie in the Modern Languages Department. This conference
was started in 1994 by College of Education Regent's Professor emeritus Dr. Gina
Cantoni, and since then it has been held at sites across the United States and
Canada. It is designed to allow community, preschool, K-12, college, and
university indigenous language educators and activists through panels,
workshops, and papers to share methods and materials for promoting and teaching
indigenous languages. The 2008 conference will focus on how indigenous language
nests and immersion classrooms can help revitalize languages and cultures.
Keynote speakers include Dr. Christine Sims (Acoma), Darrell Robes Kipp
(Blackfoot), and Dr. Peggy Speas. A conference proceedings of selected papers is
planned.
