A two-year project at Ilisagvik College to create an online, interactive Inupiaq language database, to produce Inupiaq language materials for an online library, and to train faculty in the use of the database and related software.

The Iupiaq language, classified by UNESCO as severely endangered, is the regional language of Alaska's North Slope. The region, similar in size to Minnesota, is home to only 13,000 Iupiaq people, approximately 2,000 of which are fluent speakers. This project will create a simplified, online Iupiaq language database to provide multiple communities of users, from youth to elders, a platform to create, collaborate, and share dynamic content in Iupiaq. The project will facilitate the Iupiaq Studies Faculty and students in generating content in the form of Iupiaq books, both in digital and print format and applications for digital devices. This effort is grounded in the traditional Iupiaq values of sharing, knowledge of language and cooperation.
