Programs & Services



The Indigenous Language Institute conducts research and development:

ILI research gleans from evidence-based research, observations of diverse approaches and models, and direct input from Native communities that we work with. We analyze the information to develop templates for language materials and products that will help language teachers and learners. The templates are tested to Teach and Share with the indigenous communities.


The ILI teaches what we gleaned through research.


The ILI shares with indigenous communities and the public critical information:

As a national center serving communities revitalizing their languages, the ILI network connects our members to each other. We provide national and international press with critical information and contacts for coverage about the efforts to save indigenous languages.
