Native Innovation, Inc. is excited to offer you the Diné Bizaad Dictionary app. We are adding to the Diné language revitalization initiative, a movement throughout our region, to promote the Diné language. We hope to promote and instill pride in our Diné language learners by offering this revolutionary technology tool.
We are using the internet and the World Wide Web as a repository for preserving the Diné language. Speaking our Diné language instills our values, our wisdom and our way of life. We see our generation preserving the Diné language, then our goal is to have the next generation promoting the Diné language. We challenge you to promote life-long learning in all our indigenous language learners by either becoming creative facilitators or mentoring a language learner.
SPONSORS This project is not fully funded and we are seeking donations and/or sponsors to continue researching, collaborating with communities, enhancing the modules in the app, updating the database and create more exciting apps. Donate at https://squareup.com/market/native-innovation-inc.
