Every fourteen days a language dies. By the year 2100 more than half of the world’s languages will disappear. These are tough statistics, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Indigenous people everywhere are fighting to beat the odds. It’s a remarkable story. We’re discovering and sharing their successes by focusing on and celebrating the many individuals, communities and organizations that are reclaiming their language, and along with it, their culture, their stories and often, their very existence as a people.
This is a collection of four episodes highlighting various aspects of communities, organizations and individuals reclaiming their languages across the Dawnland.

I really enjoyed watching the video of Imelda Perley teaching the language, and our traditional ways by involving the people with cultural activities in our natural environment. I like listening to the stories from our people and the teachings from our Elders.
Thank you for your comment. Imelda is a treasure and her knowledge is a gift to our communities. We are always happy to share.
