Indigenous Language inclusion Protest

Hi,
Indigenous Languages need to be approved in higher institutions of learning. I have made it a goal to try and get the Cherokee Language approved at Duke University, as well as having the possibility of other indigenous students get their home languages Approved. This idea needs support. A letter has been drafter. We have a petition going and need more signatures. If this is an issue you can support, please do so.

Haaw'aa (Haida for thank you)

Isha, have a look at what Ontario's Ministry of education did for language development both in elementary and post secondary education. Native Languages

Also have a look at what Lakehead University has done: http://library.lakeheadu.ca/?pg=506

Might save you some time if you can show the admin that other universities have developed a language plan. Good luck!
