The preservation of national languages ​​will be discussed in Chukotka

The Chukotka Institute for the Development of Education and Advanced Training is currently preparing the first scientific and practical conference "Ethnic groups of Chukotka: history and modernity." It will take place on November 6 at the Chukotka regional specialized lyceum. According to the director of the educational institution Valentina Sinkevich, the event will become a permanent regional platform for constructively solving problematic issues, putting forward initiatives and practical application of experience in the preservation and development of the languages ​​of indigenous peoples - Chukchi, Eskimo, Even.

- Now this issue is very serious on the agenda. Many representatives of different ethnic groups live on the territory of our state, and the national policy of Russia is aimed at their preservation and comprehensive development. For Chukotka, this is more relevant than ever, therefore we hope that the proposed format will arouse wide public interest and in the future will significantly increase the number of speakers, - Valentina Sinkevich commented.

The first conference will be attended by almost all employees of the institute who teach ethnopedagogy and culture in the district. The organizers set themselves an important task - to intensify scientific and creative activity, involving workers of the education system, culture, the media and all interested residents of Chukotka in solving the issues of preserving and developing national languages.

The conference will be held on the same day in full-time format in three sections: education and science; culture, art and media; family as a center for preserving the national identity of the indigenous peoples of Chukotka.

The best materials will be placed on the site of the institute chiroipk.ru. In addition, said Valentina Sinkevich, final compilations will be prepared.

- I would like the result to be useful in sociocultural and educational terms. So that in the end we get a positive experience that can be applied in practice, which will allow us to create a unified environment for a comfortable life and the development of languages, - shared the director of the Chukotka Institute for Education Development and Professional Development.

It is noteworthy that the first conference will take place in a special year for the institute - this year it celebrates its 25th anniversary. For its anniversary, the institute prepared and published at its own expense a number of textbooks, including "Bone carving art of Chukotka", as well as a set for studying the Chukchi language in the 1st grade, including teaching materials, workbooks and a bank of audio recordings. In the near future, "Bone carving art" will be distributed in the libraries of Chukotka, and a kit for learning the Chukchi language will be tested in several rural schools.
