CILLDI (pronounced ‘sill-dee’) hosts an annual summer school held at the University of Alberta, and is dedicated to the revitalization of Canada’s Indigenous languages through documentation, teaching, and literacy. Our purpose is to support individuals at the community level by providing basic training in linguistics, native languages, second language teaching, and other aspects of professional enhancement such as language-related research and policy making.
We supply tools to Indigenous language activists so that they can better promote, protect, practice, and pass on their language. This includes a unique opportunity: students can earn university credits while learning about selected Canadian Indigenous languages and cultures. We are very pleased to have so many returning students each year.
