Speaking and Texting Indigenously

Spark: Episode174 – March 4 & 7, 2012

"Indigenous language activist Dustin Rivers blogs and podcasts to teach Squamish to youth whose parents and grandparents can’t speak the language. His big dream is to use the internet to create a new tribe of language speakers. (Runs 8:17)"
