'Star Wars' to Be Translated Into a Native American Language

'Star Wars' to Be Translated Into a Native American Language | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"For over 35 years, the Star Wars universe has spoken the universal language of geek. Now the 1977 classic will take on another language. No, not Gungan again, thank goodness.

 

Rather, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the original 1977 classic Star Wars will be translated and dubbed into Navajo. Manuelito Wheeler, the director of the Navajo Nation Museum, confirmed they are working with Lucasfilm and Deluxe on the project. While Star Wars has been translated into many different languages, this particular translation is a historic one: it will be the first major Hollywood film to be translated for Native Americans."

First Nations language program 'should be mandatory,' parent says

First Nations language program 'should be mandatory,' parent says | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

*Younger students at two Thunder Bay elementary schools will soon be able to learn Ojibwe, but at least one parent says efforts to teach First Nations languages should go further.

 

This fall, grade 6 students at Algonquin and Ecole Gron Morgan elementary schools will be included in the Lakehead Public School Board’s native language pilot program. Previously, students could enroll in grade 7.

 

For Nicole McKay — whose daughter is a student in the program — learning Ojibwe is as important as learning French.

"It should be mandatory,” McKay said. “If they're going to be doing that for one language they should be doing that for another language — especially the First Nations language because it's part of the history of this place." *
