Kaidipang-Bolangitang is an Austronesian language spoken by the Kaidipang ethnic group in North Sulawesi, Indonesia. An endangered language, it is spoken by around 25,000 people. The language is taught in some elementary schools, though there are no textbooks, learning dictionaries, or other teaching materials available to support learners.

Daanisy is a member of the Kaidipang-Bolangitang diaspora living in Jakarta. As a heritage speaker of Kaidipang-Bolangitang, he’s been working with elder speakers to compile a Kaidipang-Bolangitang lexicon. For this project, he will create a bilingual Kaidipang-Indonesian dictionary and launch a Wikipedia edition of his language within the incubator hub.
