IK was selected by ITVS to partner with both Makepeace Productions and Cultural Survival's Endangered Languages program to produce a companion website for the independent film, We Still Live Here - Ās Nutayuneān. The interactive website, titled OurMotherTongues.org features twelve Native American communities in the United States. Each of these communities is taking charge of their history, their identity, and their culture by reawakening their language.
The site contains a language map, using Google's My Maps with custom markers representative of the twelve tribes, a voices mosaic page where the viewer can hear Native Americans speak their mother tongues. In addition, the website features ten video clips from Native American leaders, historians, linguists and others discussing the importance of learning one's mother tongue. Each featured community has a dedicated page where community members talk about why they are learning their mother language.
A special feature of the site is the Audio ePostcard Greeting. Viewers can engage their friends and family and raise awareness about endangered languages by selecting a postcard that contains an audio greeting in one of the website's featured native languages.
The website was developed with DotNetNuke, an open source ASP.NET content management system and .NET web application development framework. The website also incorporates the video-sharing tool, Vimeo, an open source blog administration tool and social media integration.
