BLOOM is a web app that offers free intermediate-level Indigenous language learning courses that are developed in collaboration with Native Nations, international governments, and linguistic communities. Our mission is to provide accessible, foundational Indigenous language education that empowers the next generation of global speakers and leaders; with the vision being to reverse both Indigenous language loss and its negative social and political impacts all while offering youth a sense of pride, cultural knowledge, and a deeper connection to their heritage via language (Task Force on Aboriginal Languages and Cultures, 2005). BLOOM will focus on launching our beta in May 2018.
