Language Revitalization in Vancouver Island
Salish Communities: A Multimedia Approach
A CURA Project
January 1 2004 - December 31 2008 (extended to December 2009)
CURA projects strive to unite universities and communities in ways which are mutually beneficial and which allow members of the two groups to work together to accomplish common goals.
Here, we tell you about the goals of the Coast Salish Language Revitalization CURA, the people that were involved in the CURA during its duration, the types of projects that were created within the Hul’q’umi'num’ and SENĆOŦEN speaking communities, and the outputs and outcomes of our work.
Discussions about applying for funding for a Coast Salish Language Revitalization CURA began in 2002. During the duration of the CURA community and university worked together to contribute towards ensuring that the SENĆOŦEN and Hul’q’umi’num’ languages will live fully again.

The principal source of funding for the Coast Salish Language Revitalization CURA is SSHRCC (CURA Grant #833-2003-1031). Each partner organization also contributed substantial financial or in-kind support. We are very grateful for all this support; without it the work on Coast Salish Language Revitalization would not have been possible.
SSHRC is an arm's-length federal agency that promotes and supports university-based research and training in the Social Sciences and Humanities. Created by an act of Parliament in 1977, SSHRC is governed by a 22-member council that reports to Parliament through the Minister of Industry.
SSHRC-funded research fuels innovative thinking about real life issues, including the economy, education, health care, the environment, immigration, globalization, language, ethics, peace, security, human rights, law, poverty, mass communication, politics, literature, addiction, pop culture, sexuality, religion, Aboriginal rights, the past, our future.
