“Growing the fire within” is the theme of this whiteboard video on Indigenous language revitalization. We are thrilled that it was selected for the Smithsonian’s short film festival on Indigenous languages.
We designed this video in partnership with UVic, based on presentations and discussions from a gathering of Indigenous language keepers from across Turtle Island (North America) in January 2020.
The whiteboard video was designed and animated by Tanya Gadsby, in partnership with Jamin Zuroski (‘Namgis Nation), who designed the Indigenous symbols and graphics throughout.
We also compiled a visual report that included graphics from the animation, alongside photographs, stories, and findings from the event.
