I am seriously hoping that the National Indigenous orgs, and specifically the MNC is not the granting body for all Metis looking to access Indigenous Languages funding. That would be an absolute disaster for so many reasons. @HeritageCanada I hope you are paying attention.
To that end, Heritage Canada should not be the one heading up the language legislation either. An independent body of language experts who have been working for decades on language revitalization and retention should be at the helm of this.
So far what I have seen is the national Indigenous orgs and Heritage Canada doing this and language experts I know have not been contacted or been asked to lead. The Canadian Government always takes the lazy route. They keep going to orgs as "one-stop-Indigenous-shopping."
I can tell you right now that if the National orgs are the only ones driving the Indigenous Languages Legislation it is going to fall WAAAAYYY short of what it can and needs to be. Poltiics need to be removed from the decisions.
