Indigenous Languages: The Legacy We Leave

Indigenous Languages: The Legacy We Leave

Ensuring our languages thrive is one of the most precious gifts we can leave our children and their children. While starting, or even engaging in, indigenous language revitalization and normalization efforts is not for the light-hearted, the rewards are priceless. This video affirms that there are more and more communities of everyday people doing extraordinary things, by working together and building on examples from other indigenous communities, to uplift their languages and leave this valuable legacy in tact.

“We’re fighting for generations and generations who will know that we loved them enough to preserve and carry on language for them.”
– Dr. Audra Platero, Navajo Language Advocate
