Blackfoot Revitalization 

Researchers at Simon Fraser University have created an online resource to promote the use of the Blackfoot language. In 2016, there were less than five thousand fluent speakers documented, resulting in its endangered status by UNESCO. This resource teaches vocabulary, pronunciation, and eventually forming sentences to aid in the revival of the Blackfoot language.
