The Indigenous Language Restoration Initiative was designed to collect active samples of disappearing languages, which are collected through elders whom still speak the indigenous language.

The purpose of collecting these language samples is to preserve not only a language, but also a culture.

The first stage of my project will be to collect recordings of cultural stories and folklore from the Athapaskan language, but more specifically the Babine-Witsuwit'en or Carrier/Dakelh dialect speakers. After I have collected the stories, I will have each story transcribed and along with its respective audio sample, they will be made available online for all language speakers and learners to read or use.
