Enduring Voices: Digital Media Workshop for Speakers of Endangered Languages in Latin America
Dates: January 7-11, 2013
Place: Santiago Library , Matucana 151, Chile
Collaborators: Enduring Voices Project  (Living Tongues Institute + National Geographic Society), UTEM University , Fundación Imagen of Chile , and Rising Voices .
Context: When ideas are extinguished, we all end up poorer. Half of the planet's 7000 languages are now in danger of extinction: a drastic change in humanity's intellectual history. The basis of human knowledge is enduring, and during 99% of the our history, it was transmitted by word of mouth. Yet, it is fragile. It is largely not written, and vulnerable to be forgotten. Digital technologies can help document and preserve this knowledge found in these languages.
Objectives: To train 12 indigenous participants with the goal that they learn how to create a registry of their endangered languages by creating new linguistic materials, such as talking dictionaries through the use of computers, cameras, audio recorders and other technologies. (The workshop will be conducted in Spanish).
Agenda: Each day will be dedicated to a different activity related to digital linguistic documentation. All of the materials produced will be in the participants’ indigenous language. The following is the preliminary agenda for the workshop:
DAY 1 – Monday, January 7, 2013
DAY 2 – Tuesday, January 8, 2013
DAY 3 – Wednesday, January 9, 2013
DAY 4. Thursday, January 10, 2013
DAY 5. Friday, January 11, 2013
The following are the indigenous participants, who are experts in their native languages:
The facilitators are:
Dr. Gregory D. S. Anderson  (Living Tongues Institute), Anna Luisa Daigneault  (Living Tongues Institute), Eddie Avila  (Rising Voices) and Luis Godoy Saavedra  (Centro de Desarollo Social, UTEM).
