Amer-Ind Gestural Code Based on Universal American Indian Hand Talk.
Amer-Ind is a code based on the hand shapes used by native Americans to cross language barriers.
It is used by adults who have lost their speech and people with learning disabilities, and is more 'guessable' than signs from sign languages used by the deaf community.
It does not follow the word order of any spoken language, and uses 'keywords' only.
Unlike gestures, gestural codes are more formalized. Individuals in nursing homes, hospitals, and residential centers typically used gestural codes for communication purposes.
However, gestural codes are generally not used any longer, with the exception of Amer-Ind.
Amer-ind is a gestural code used by Native American Indians.
The system was developed to allow tribes with different language systems the ability to communicate with one another.
