The Community Language Planning Guide is the outcome of the relationship between SICC staff, Elders Council and community language representatives. This guide provides a language planning framework that is a result of years of community collaboration. It is our hope that language champions, educators, professionals, and anyone interested in language revitalization will find this guide useful within their communities as it will benefit any First Nation language.
This guide contributes to the efforts of reviving First Nation languages for any community. It will provide the tools for strategic planning to incorporate language priorities, focus on energy and resources, strengthen procedures and ensure all critical elements are working toward common goals. One of the main principles behind community language planning is that during the early stages, community engagement occurs as much as possible. The effectiveness of the plan relies heavily on the collective voices of all community members and that each person has an opportunity to contribute.
