Abstract
Description
In Manawan, an Indigenous community in Canada, the presenter has initiated a school project in 2013 to create a Wikipedia in the local language Atikamekw, spoken by 8,000 people. Today, the Wikipedia in Atikamekw has many regular native editors and is used in the Atikamekw schools, the Atikamekw institutions and at home. The aim of this presentation is to communicate the importance of endangered languages existing on the web to be regularly used. (session 3.6.5)
