The Indigenous Language Documentation micro-certificate provides training for those looking to engage in language documentation and reclamation initiatives. Learners will gain skills in documentation and recording, learn proper protocols for working with knowledge keepers and archival documents, create new materials for Indigenous language revitalization, and gain a better understanding of intellectual ownership of Indigenous intangible cultural property. Participants in this credit program will gain essential skills for employment. This includes activities such as audio/video recording and editing, creating resources and best practices for record collection, and language revitalization projects at the community and government level.
