Digital Archive of Indigenous Language Persistence

DAILP is a community-based digital archive created to support indigenous peoples’ knowledge, interpretations, and representations of the past.  Our collection of Cherokee syllabary documents have been translated by Cherokee speakers and annotated by teams of Northeastern students, Cherokee community members, and linguists. The DAILP team is currently building a collaborative place for indigenous language learners, speakers, and scholars to interpret documents and other media housed in partner libraries and museums.
