Proceedings of the Arctic Indigenous Languages Symposium
The symposium was significant for two reasons: it was the first time that there has been an Arctic Council symposium focusing on the importance of indigenous languages and their role in maintaining indigenous cultures and supporting the aspirations of indigenous peoples; and it was the first time that a significant Arctic Council meeting has been organized and led by the Permanent Participants. The symposium was successful in meeting its objectives, which included: sharing best practices; engaging with policy makers and indigenous experts on the state of indigenous languages; exploring the role of language in supporting Arctic-specific knowledge; examining the ways language is transmitted through cultural expression; and developing recommendations on the next steps needed to promote and maintain indigenous languages.
