About the Seneca Language Department - Allegany Territory

Posted in: Seneca Media & Communications Center

The mission of the Allegany Language Department, Ögwaiwanösde’ Ögwawënö’—we cherish our language, is to promote conversational Seneca language use at the Seneca Nation. To increase the use of the Seneca language throughout the Nation, the department works with fluent/highly proficient speakers to train apprentices for long-term, professional positions, as conversational Seneca language teachers for early childhood, community, departmental, school-district, and/or college level Seneca language and culture classes. Apprentices shall train to work as revitalization, documentation, translation, and resource development specialists. In addition to training language professionals, the department houses a Digital Seneca Language Specialist to assist in the development of web-based learning/teaching tools, hands-on instructional materials, and the audio-visual content required by Seneca language learners and teachers both on and off-territory.
