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.
