BEYOND WORDS: DICTIONARIES AND INDIGENOUS LANGUAGES

Main Gallery: September 3 - October 15, 2021

Brought to you by the Canadian Language Museum, "Beyond Words: Dictionaries and Indigenous Languages" highlights the complex relationship between Indigenous languages and dictionaries over several centuries, from word lists and dictionaries developed for exploration, colonization, conversion and assimilation purposes, to online language materials being developed by Indigenous communities to transmit the elders’ language knowledge to today’s youth. This exhibition is sponsored by Canadian Heritage, through the Museums Assistance Program.
