Digital Tools for Learning & Preserving Indigenous Languages
Aniin! Interested in learning an Indigenous language? Here are two digital tools that might make it easier:
The folks over at the Miyo Wahkohtiwin Community Education Authority have taken their Online Cree Dictionary and turned it into an iPhone/iPad app, free of charge.
Not i-based but still just as cool is Isadore Toulouse’s dimdim-based Anishinabemowen (Ojibway) virtual classroom. Also free of charge, the classroom operates every Wednesday at 7:30 PM ET.

Awesome! If I had an iPhone I would attend Isadore Toulouse’s virtual classroom to continue learning and improving upon my Anishinaabemowin! 😀
The beauty of Toulouse's online course is that you don't need an iPad, just a decent internet connection. It's website based (and pretty cool, I checked it out the other night!).
