Say It First

Indigenous Language Revitalization

Mike Parkhill and Brent Tookenay on The Agenda(TVO)

The decline of indigenous languages is part of the tragic legacy of Canada's residential school system. Mike Parkhill, founder of indigenous language advocacy website, and Brent Tookenay, CEO of Seven Generations Educational Institute, are working together to change the tide. They join The Agenda in the Summer to discuss how technology and community can help revitalize indigenous languages.
