The American Indian Language Development Institute (AILDI) at the University of Arizona will announce the UNESCO Year of International Indigenous Language on January 30 & 31, 2019 with information booths on the campus mall. The booths will feature information related to Indigenous languages, with an emphasis on four tribal languages within the state of Arizona: Tohono O’odham, Hopi, Navajo and Yaqui. The booths will also feature interactive displays and games designed to create awareness and appreciation of Indigenous languages including having select, existing building names translated into either Hopi, Navajo, Tohono O’odham or Yaqui.
