Indigenous Language Revitalization and the Arts

with Jeremy Dutcher, Laura Michel and Kevin Loring

Family programming Indigenous arts Theatre Talks
  • NAC Indigenous Theatre
  • Arts Alive

  Sep 27, 2022 - 2 PM EDT   ~40 minutes with no intermission.

Children in Residential Schools were prohibited from and punished for speaking their mother tongues, resulting not only in the loss of Indigenous languages but also the loss of cultural practices, community and identity. Despite all of this, today’s youth are leading the charge in language revitalization efforts. Join us as we discuss the crucial role that this generation’s artists play in the preservation, protection and revitalization of Indigenous languages across Turtle Island, and explore the dynamic relationship between language and artistic practice.
