Indigenous Language Institute
The societal push for universal languages, known as a "language shift," causes countries to rely on universal languages for communication over indigenous languages. As a result, the Tewa language, spoken by six Native American Pueblos in New Mexico, has been slowly declining over the last century. The goal of this project was to contribute to the preservation of Tewa by designing a mobile application and a supplementary website that would aid in language education. Detailed interactive mockups were first designed to help visualize the final products. The application was then programmed for the Android platform, and the website was created with Google Sites. After extensive prototyping, we created a functional application and an interactive website design with learning tools.
