Indigenous languages

Nothing stands still in the world of Google and this is such an interesting addition to Google Earth. It launches very nicely in the Google Chrome browser. I remember a time when you absolutely had to download the Earth application to run it.

Once the application loads, click on the Voyager icon to begin your exploration. Of interest is the Celebrating Indigenous Languages project.

You’re prompted by our globe with many placemarks stuck in it.

So, take the globe for a spin and find a placemark in a location of interest.

Of course, my first trip was to Ontario and I ended up in Ohsweken.

The results give you a short profile of the speaker and the opportunity to listen in their language.

The concept and imagery make for yet another fascinating way to explore our world.
