Atikamekw Nation keeps language alive through Wikimedia projects

Atikamekw is a language spoken by approximately 8,000 people across three communities in Quebec. Contributors have focused on recording sound clips of elders, creating content about Atikamekw stories, legends and traditional activities, and uploading photos to expand the amount of positive images of the community online.
