ANIMATED IGBO CARTOONS PROJECT

Igbo, a language of over thirty million native speakers living predominantly in South-Eastern Nigeria, and which, due to immigration, now has a significant native-speaker representation in North America, is categorized as an endangered language due to sociolinguistic factors resulting in decreasing native-speaker competence. In North America and everywhere else where Igbo is spoken, modern professional families often have neither time nor the knowledge of the oral traditions to transfer to their children. We are stepping in to provide an avenue for the Igbo child/family to learn language, values, customs, ethics, etc., through media contents such as video lessons, cartoons and folktales.

This collaborative and interdisciplinary project focuses on preserving the Igbo language, which, according to the UNESCO and endangered language scholars, will be extinct in 50 years. This website is designed to be a Learning Management System, and an online language centre where adults can access video lessons and animations; young learners, cartoons and animated videos; and parents, cartoons and language tools to teach Igbo to their children.
