The Ways: Revitalizing Indigenous Language and Culture Around the Great Lakes

Hoping to do a longer length post on this great project for RPM, but thought I’d put this up to share.

The Ways

TheWays.org is a new site dedicated to educating and sharing stories of Native language and cultural projects in the Central Great Lakes region. They have a beautifully-designed web interface that features excellent graphics, maps, and teaching tools to complement the video stories.

Check out their first two pieces: a music video for Ojibway MC Tall Paul‘s track “Prayers in a Song” and a short documentary on family-based Menominee language revitalization.
