The Sanfoka Film Works combines entertainment and stunning visuals with providing the environment for extensive academic study in ecolinguists, indigenous teaching practices, ways of knowing, and frameworks for interacting with the world. From each of the communities we visit an academic paper will be written with the findings of this research field season and submitted to a hierarchy of influential scientific journals.
The desired impact of this academic paper will be to infuse new data from first-hand field sources into the academic study of ecolinguistics and the scientific understanding of the indigenous languages in conjunction with further data about the interconnectivity of indigenous culture with the environment.
We also explore these ideas through emerging and new technologies, like ethnographic VR immersive experience and documentation processes, and long form yarns shared in an unedited podcast series to explore the foundations of all the things the Sankofa team are studying.
