October 17 at Elders & Youth Conference


Planning to be at AFN? If so, don’t miss Doyon Foundation’s “Taking Language Revitalization Online – Using GIFs to Get the Word Out” workshop during the First Alaskans Institute Elders & Youth Conference on Tuesday, October 17 at the Dena’ina Civic and Convention Center in Anchorage. We are currently on the schedule for 3:45 p.m., but please check the daily schedule for current details on time and location.

edzooThe workshop will introduce Doyon Languages Online (DLO), a project to create and publish introductory language lessons for Native languages of the Doyon region. FAI summer intern, Diloola Erickson, will share her experience creating media content for DLO using Native GIFs. During the workshop, we will create a GIF live with youth participants’ ideas and Elders’ leadership. We will also brainstorm other forms of social media that could be used to get people excited and engaged with language revitalization.

This fun workshop is ideal for anyone interested in social media, language revitalization, youth engagement, and those with a good sense of humor. We hope you’ll join us!
