This video clip is an interview excerpt of Professor Onowa McIvor, the Director of the Indigenous Education program at the University of Victoria.
The purpose of this library guide is to support students in UVic's Graduate Certificate or Master's Degree in Indigenous Language Revitalization. In particular, this guide lists relevant resources held by UVic Libraries on language revitalization topics as recommended by students and instructors of these programs. Please let me know if you have recommendations for additional titles to be added to this guide or to be ordered for the libraries' collection.
For more specific resources organized by language family, please refer to the drop-down menu of the "Language Revitalization" tab above.
Because the naming of languages continues to change and develop, searching the libraries' holdings through databases and the catalogue can be challenging; please contact me if you require library research assistance. This guide continues to improve as I learn more about the language revitalization needs of UVic's students and researchers. Please let me know if changes are required.
Reference books and other tertiary resources are often overlooked sources of scholarly knowledge. If you want a great definition of a theory that goes beyond wikipedia, I highly recommend these titles held by UVic Libraries.
