Hosted by the Council of Indigenous Language Organizations (CILO) and its partners in honor of the United Nations’ International Decade of Indigenous Languages (IDIL), we’re bringing together Indigenous communities, educators, linguists, and scholars from around the world to share their knowledge and experiences. With presentations and workshops that showcase exemplary practices and innovative approaches, we hope to chart a path forward for the future of Indigenous language work.

CILO and the ICILDER wish to acknowledge and honor the Indigenous communities native to this region, we acknowledge that our main office in Bloomington, Indiana, was built on Indigenous homelands and resources. We recognize the Miami, Delaware, Potawatomi, and Shawnee people as past, present, and future caretakers of this land, and honor with gratitude the land itself and the people who have stewarded it throughout the generations. CILO works towards building better relationships with Native American communities through language revitalization, partnerships, historical recognitions, and community service. We ask you to join us in acknowledging the Indigenous communities here and wherever we work, their Elders both past and present, as well as future generations.
