Indigenous Language publications and curriculum materials
An important part of the EMP mandate is to partner with essential voices and expand the print resources needed in teaching their unique languages. For example, an early-reader text in Ucwalmícwts is hard to come by. School districts do not prioritize publication of Indigenous language teaching materials and most teachers make their own, then photocopy.
EMP is already partnering with language teachers and Elder Speakers to publish top quality, very affordable books and curriculum materials. These include plays, calendars and primary readers - so far.
EMP is open and enthusiastic to work with appropriate language authorities to extend this service outside of its regular trade publishing activities. Please contact us to find out more!
