Endangered Languages and Traditional Knowledge

The documentation of endangered languages and traditional knowledge serves the purpose of maintaining cultural diversity. Based on video reordings since the mid-1990s with peoples in the Russian Far East, the Foundation for Siberian Cultures produces learning tools on the language and culture of the Itelmens, Evens, and the Koryaks.  » more
