Indigenizing the Structural Syllabus: The Challenge of Revitalizing Mi'gmaq in Listuguj [Mela Sarkar, Mali An’n Metallic]

“Mi'gmaq, an Algonkian language of northeastern North America, is one of nearly 50 surviving Indigenous languages in Canada that are usually not considered to be viable into the next century. Only Inuktitut, Cree, and Ojibwe presently have enough younger speakers to provide a critical mass for long-term survival. In one Mi'gmaq community, however, a new way of passing on the language to adults who do not already speak it is rekindling new hope for the language.
