Minority Languages on the Web: Digital Literacy in Indigenous Communities

  • Cécile-Marie Martin
Keywords: linguistic minorities, indigenous communities, digital tools


In spite of the declarations of proponents of a Web understood as a global space, governed by laws aiming to ensure universal access, the question of the representativeness of linguistic minorities remains eminently political. From there, it is legitimate to ask to what extent the Web can be a place for indigenous communities expressing themselves through minority languages. In order to question the presence of minority languages on the Web, this paper will focus on different projects developed by or with indigenous communities. Through these examples, the possibilities of mutualisation and the transferability of these innovations will be discussed.
