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 students, linguists, and Cherokee community members. DAILP is currently building a collaborative online space to facilitate communication between indigenous language learners, speakers, and scholars. Contributors will be able to interpret documents and other media housed in our partner libraries and museums.
