This session highlights two innovative programs that promote language, literacy, and culture in Native American Communities. Arlene V. Salazar will discuss the "Roving Exhibit PowWow," project, which provided an outreach and marketing of their American Indian children's and young adult literature collections. Erin Hollingsworth will present "Iñupiaq Edge: Iñupiaq History, Language, and Culture in the Community and Classroom," a project that utilizes technology to promote language, history and culture documentations and revitalization. This program is sponsored by the Committee on Rural, Native, and Tribal Libraries of All Kinds (RNTLOAK), Committee on Literacy (COL) and the American Indian Library Association (AILA).
