dc.description.abstract This project represents the first documented community wide language survey in the Kanyen’kehaka (Mohawk people) territory of Kenhtè:ke. Language revitalization efforts began in this community over a decade ago and with no previous benchmark on which to evaluate the successes of the current programs, it was believed that completing this exercise would allow the community to successfully continue to rebuild the language and culture. There are currently three levels of formal language programs: preschool, primary and adult that are producing speakers at varying levels of proficiency. This is a huge step from a decade ago when language was at a very critical state with no known living mother tongue speakers in the community. The goal of this project is to investigate the importance of Kanyen’kéha to the people of Kenhtè:ke. This project is important to all stakeholders to evaluate efforts, attitudes and motivations to continue to build on current regeneration and revitalization efforts. en_US
