The International Year of Indigenous Languages is 2019. The Poetry in First Languages (PIFL) project celebrates, shares and preserves knowledge of First Nations languages and culture through poetry, music, dance and art.?PIFL supports First Nations students in creating poetry in first languages by connecting them to First Nations poets, Elders and Language Custodians on country. Our aim is to strengthen connections of First Nations students to country, language and community to empower pride in their cultural identities resulting in enhanced wellbeing.?https://redroomcompany.org/projects/poetry-first-languages/

I love how you are using poetry as a vehicle to affirm and elevate local languages. Very cool program.
