Welcome to language exhibition opening 16.9
Join us for the opening of the Ságastallamin Arctic Indigenous languages exhibition which commemorates the 2019 UN International Year of Indigenous Languages. Light refreshments will be served.
The exhibition presents the region, the Peoples, and the languages that they speak. We look at some of the challenges facing the languages in the past and in the modern day. We also learn about some revitalization efforts taking place around the circumpolar Arctic, made possible with the help of new laws protecting the languages and their status, state-funded institutions, regional corporations, community-based initiatives, and modern technology.
The exhibition is a collaboration between the University Library and the Arctic Council Indigenous Peoples' Secretariat.
