[Wikimedia-l] Recognition of the Wikimedians of North American Indigenous Languages User Group

Kirill Lokshin
Hi everyone!

I'm very happy to announce that the Affiliations Committee has recognized
the Wikimedians of North American Indigenous Languages User Group [1] as a
Wikimedia User Group. The group aims to support the creation and
development of Wikimedia projects and other language-related free knowledge
initiatives in the indigenous languages of North America.

Please join me in congratulating the members of this new user group!

Regards,
Kirill Lokshin
Chair, Affiliations Committee

This is a great news, thank you Kirill, and all member of this group for
their work of unvaluable importance regarding language diversity.

Are they any plane to collect traditional tales and songs in addition to
Lingua Libre sessions?

By the way, I see we have Atikamekw
<https://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/Atikamekw_language> courses on
Wikiversity, altough it seems more like a stub. I think it would be
interesting to have an evaluation matrix of languages courses we have in
Wikimedia projects, and it might be a good idea to coordinate efforts
around language courses. Actually I think it could be an interesting
path to both attract new contributors and provide people opportunity to
have meaningful practical use of what they learn, if each lesson could
be matched with some text to translate extracted from some of our Wiki
projects. What is your opinion about that?

Cheers

I had proposed to create a project called WikiLang to teach languages on a
Wikimedia platform, but it didn't attract enough attention so I moved the
content to the Wikiversity and that's what you see there with the Atikamekw
language.

 I forgot to include the link to the WikiLang portal on the Wikiversity:
