Doyon Foundation is pleased to announce a second call for linguistics consultants and content creators for the Doyon Languages Online project. Interested applicants are encouraged to review the RFQs (request for qualifications) for linguistics consultants and content creators, and apply by January 31, 2018.
The Doyon Languages Online project is working to create 280 introductory online lessons for five of the endangered Doyon region languages: Holikachuk, Denaakk’e, Benhti Kenaga’, Hän, and Dinjii Zhuh K’yaa. Ultimately, Doyon Foundation aims to create online courses for all 10 of the Doyon region languages.
Doyon Languages Online is funded with a three-year, $900,000 grant from the Administration for Native Americans. The project is a partnership with 7000 Languages, a nonprofit that supports endangered language learning partially through software donated by Transparent Language Online.
For more information on the project scope, background, qualifications and selection process, and to access the application, please see the linguistics consultants RFQ and content creators RFQ, which are both available via the Doyon Foundation website.
