Abstract
Description
In this documentation and materials project, we bring an indigenous endangered language into everyday domains. By re-imagining Ojibwe as the norm: the language of commerce, raising kids, snagging a date and arguing with relatives, we hope to not only preserve the cultural context of the language but to invite learners to explore new ways of using Ojibwe. This paper is also an invitation for those engaged in documentation to think about documentation and production as a process of cultural intervention and revitalization. Can a design process done in close consultation with community members generate materials that serve documentation and revitalization goals?
