Language Planning Considerations in Indigenous Communities.
Ruiz, Richard
Bilingual Research Journal, v19 n1 p71-81 Win 1995
Examines federally funded bilingual education programs for American Indians and Alaska Natives from a language planning perspective. It is argued that federal programs represent an exoglossic (externally orientated) policy that can contribute to language loss. Indigenous communities need to develop endoglossic (community-orientated) policies that foster linguistic and cultural maintenance. (23 references) (MDM)
