This document describes elements of a multi-year project, led by indigenous peoples, to assess, monitor and promote indigenous language vitality in the Arctic. It comes as a follow- up to recommendations coming out of the 2008 Arctic Indigenous Languages Symposium and the 2009-2010 Scoping a Way Forward initiative, and is anchored in other recent initiatives of indigenous organizations, parliaments, and research networks. Indigenous leaders have strongly voiced the need for an in-depth language assessment, further ‘language symposiums’ and ongoing projects focused on Arctic indigenous languages. This plan is presented as a project proposal to the Arctic Council's Sustainable Development Working Group (SDWG).
