1.2 The project
In the last few years a number of things related to literacy have changed:
To help us adapt to these changes and provide better support to Aboriginal languages, we decided it was time to examine our role in Aboriginal literacy. We began by doing some background research so that we were familiar with the issues. We looked at the importance of language in people's lives, and at the current health of Aboriginal languages in Canada and the NWT. We then identified some issues around literacy, in particular around Aboriginal literacy. We also looked at efforts to support Aboriginal languages and literacy: strategies other literacy coalitions have adopted, funding for language activities, strategies the GNWT has, as well as the Aboriginal language communities' own plans for their languages.
