A New Resource: Rising Voices And Indigenous Tweets

Rising Voices, an outreach initiative of Global Voices, aims to help bring new voices from new communities and speaking new languages to the global conversation by providing resources and funding to local groups reaching out to underrepresented communities. On the Rising Voices website, you will find citizen media guides and many case studies of citizen media outreach. If you are interested in learning more about the ways that communities have used citizen media and how you can do it yourself - you’ll want to explore this website! http://rising.globalvoicesonline.org/

Kevin Scannell founded Indigenous Tweets to enable minority language speakers to communicate on the internet. Indigenous Tweets is a website that lists tweets from under-represented languages to help indigenous speakers contact each other. Kevin also tracks blogs written in 50 indigenous and minority languages. Take a look at Kevin’s blog to read his interviews with practitioners using citizen media to promote their languages, and to learn more about Indigenous Tweets and Blogs! http://indigenoustweets.blogspot.com/2011/09/new-feature-indigenous-blog...
