International Decade of Indigenous Languages 2022 – 2032
The United Nations General Assembly proclaimed the period of 2022-2032 as the International Decade of Indigenous Languages (IDIL2022-2032).
This resolution aims to “promote and protect Indigenous languages and improve the lives of those who speak and sign them and will contribute to achieving the objectives set out in the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.” (see About the IDIL2022-2032)
AAAL recognizes the direct relevance and importance of the IDIL2022-2032. We encourage applied linguistics scholars to develop awareness and understanding of Indigenous languages and their users, and to support the IDIL2022-2032 initiatives both locally and globally.
