Algonkian Language Revitalization
During the Colonial Period, in what is now referred to as North America, many Indigenous peoples were forced to not only abandon their ancestral lands, cultures and traditions, but also their languages. However, in 1990, Public Law 101-477 repudiated past policies of eradicating Indian Languages by declaring as policy that Native Americans were entitled to use their own languages.
The Three Sisters Algonkian Language Class
The World Alliance of Indigenous Peoples has developed The Three Sisters Algonkian Language Class to assist Northeastern Woodland Indians in revitalizing their Native Tongues. Classes are held online and culminate in The Three Sisters Native American Festival and Summit. Students are invited to share their learning experiences during a panel discussion, as well as converse with one another in Algonkian. This event, which honors many Indigenous Cultures and Peoples of Turtle Island, is rich and authentic. We hope that you will join us in Fall 2024 for the Three Sisters Native American Festival and Summit. The date and time for this event will be announced in March 2024.
Classes Begin February 11th
You can learn from the comforts of your own home. Classes are held 100% Online.
