In Canada, the Nunavut Official Languages Act came into force this month. This means the Inuit language will be given equal status to English and French, as official languages.
You can read more about this excellent recognition of Indigenous language here, at Language Magazine:
“All three official languages will enjoy equality of status and equal rights and privileges as to their use in territorial institutions — namely in the Legislative Assembly, the courts, and the departments of the government of Nunavut — and public agencies.”
In the previous piece of relevant legislation (now superceded), the Inuit language was considered secondary (alongside six other Aboriginal languages) to French and English.
Down here in Australia, I think it would be fantastic to see us move towards recognition of Aboriginal languages. A few months ago our friends over at Crikey.com’s Fully(Sic) blog talked about the current political climate of constitutional recognition of Australia’s first peoples and their languages. It’s interesting to note their take on Aboriginal languages being considered official (or “national”) languages - blog post here.
