Language and Cultural Preservation Tools
First Peoples’ cultural media preservation and Indigenous language revitalization tools help capture and retain endangered indigenous languages Many indigenous peoples worldwide have stopped speaking their endangered ancestral languages, as most of the world’s languages are transmitted orally, some without written records, or using rare dialects and fonts. Two key goals of a successful language revival are to teach kids and to encourage other family members to put the language back into the home. Technology is not going to go away, so use it to help retain your various languages and cultural properties. There are employment and training opportunities for local indigenous groups for developing relationships with other regional broadcasters to exchange stories and shows globally, extending the reach of your programming.
Indigenous governments use our open source playout automation to operate license exempt broadcasters with a portable suitcase Radio Station in a Box. Pop up TV stations manage slide shows on digital signage in admin building lobbies to present heritage pictures and videos for members and visitors alike. This is particularly important, as Indigenous culture traditionally have a rich supply of heritage material they want to share, but are reluctant to do so online because it can get cut and pasted, and disappear. Regional networks of signage display panels used as communication tools in public places by providing text based messages displaying local content with our video scheduling platforms.
