Dane-Wajich--Dane-zaa Stories and Songs: Dreamers and the Land


Conference: 
MW2008
Institution: 
Doig River First Nation with the Virtual Museum of Canada
Designer: 
Amber Ridington and Kate Hennessy
Why: 

This site is the richest I have encountered that presents First Nations cultural material online. It was created through an exemplary process of community consultation. Linguistic materials (all texts are translated between the Dane-zaa language and English) are exceptional. The audio resources will enable community revitalisation as well as much further research. From an aesthetic point of view, the design is very attractive and easy to use.
