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

Publisher: 
University of Toronto Press
Year of publication: 
2009

“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.

Transforming the Culture of Schools: Yup'ik Eskimo Examples. Sociocultural, Political, and Historical Studies in Education [Jerry Lipka, Gerald Mohatt]

Publisher: 
Lawrence Erlbaum Associates
Year of publication: 
1998

“This book demonstrates that an indigenous teachers' group has the potential to transform the culture of schooling. Personal narratives by Yup'ik Eskimo teachers speak directly to issues of equity and school transformation. Their struggles represent the beginning of a slow process by a group of Yup'ik teachers (Ciulistet) and university colleagues to reconcile differences and conflict between the cultures of school and community.
