There is so much knowledge hard-wired into languages and learning them is foundational to understanding any culture. Teacher and language keeper la̱lx̱sa̱n dala'ogwa Keisha Everson offers her perspectives on language revitalization and completely shifts my understanding of the struggles that Indigenous learners and elders are having reclaiming their ancestral languages. Listening to this discussion will give you a deeper understanding of Indigenous perspectives around reclaiming language and keep your fire hot!
