    Nuučaan̓uł in the 21st Century, a lecture by Emily Luce & Rodney Sayers. California Institute of the Arts Monday 6 October 2014 Observations on the revitalization process of a First Nations language. The nuu čaa n̓uł language is a First Nations language spoken by approximately 700 speakers on the West Coast of Vancouver Island. Evolved out of an oral history, it has only been written down for around one hundred years. Over the past ten years, Rod Sayers (a nuu čaa n̓uł speaker from the Hupač̓asatḥ First Nation) and Emily Luce (designer) have worked together on nuu čaa n̓uł language revitalization and its recorded forms. The talk will discuss cultural and technological influences on this minority language, and the implications for larger conversations in the discipline of design. Emily Luce is an artist, designer and researcher. Her work looks at issues of mass consumption, population expansion and global society and how these factors influence everyday life. Klehwetua, Rodney Sayers is a member of the Hupacasath First Nation, from Ahwinnis, now known as Port Alberni B.C. Rod’s practice examines the role of traditional artwork in a contemporary world. He believes that for an art form to remain vibrant, it must evolve and adapt, but remain true to its origins.

      This video is about Endangered Sign Languages. In small enclaves throughout the world, indigenous sign language systems have grown up in communities with unusually high rates of congenital deafness. Often in such communities, deaf people are fully integrated into society, and even hearing individuals learn and use the sign language. However, in recent decades, the norm in such areas as Ban Khor, Thailand and Adamorobe, Ghana has been for deaf children to be educated away from the local community in boarding schools, where they learn the national sign languages. They then carry these back into the native communities, where the national SL gradually infiltrates and overtakes the local varieties.
