The Indigenous Interpreter®: A Training Manual for Indigenous Language Interpreting and The Indigenous Interpreter®: A Workbook of Role Plays and Activities are foundational resources that make up part of the The Indigenous Interpreter® Curriculum.
The training manual and workbook are published here under the Creative Commons license and are now publicly available. The groundbreaking training program instructs interpreters of indigenous languages on ethics, protocols and modes – including consecutive, relay and simultaneous interpreting – in community and healthcare settings. Each module includes targeted guidance for overcoming the barriers indigenous interpreters encounter daily when interacting with providers and clients in many different service settings.
The full curriculum represents a 63-hour, 21-module training program, which, upon completion, confers The Indigenous Interpreter® National Credential: Level 1 Qualification.
Currently, Katharine Allen and Victor Sosa are licensed to train interpreters in The Indigenous Interpreter® Curriculum. Please contact Katharine or Victor directly if you or your organization is interested in offering this unique Training Program for your interpreters of indigenous languages.
