The Promise of Language

Identity  Culture  Community  Wellness 

"What one cannot argue is that the First Nations' languages are travelling well along the road to extinction. They are having a near death experience and will cease to exist if not acted upon by an external force. This defeat is a given, like it or not."

"My deep concern is that the Native population is running out of time and we are at the last place in time to attempt a recovery before these natural resources are gone forever"

"One thing we can do to change the erosion of language and culture is to digitize the older peoples' knowledge and incorporate it in a way that this information will get consumed by the younger generation"
