Title A decade of language revitalization: Kodiak Alutiiq on the brink of revolution
Description:
Published article describing the history of language revitalization efforts.
Abstract:
his article provides an overview and history of Kodiak Alutiiq language revitalization, beginning with status and speaker numbers and a brief history of community-based projects. It details the collaborative efforts of community individuals, organizations, and tribes to drag the Alutiiq language back from the brink of extinction. These efforts have been marked by numerous difficulties — dependence on grant funds, overstretching of human capacity, and differences in strategy and direction. Participating organizations and individuals have set a standard for collaboration, even in the most difficult of contexts, which has enabled the community to continue working toward language survival.
