Looking Forward to Tomorrow
Worldwide, languages face the crisis of loss and extinction as never before. The wave of collapses that began in North America and Australia continues to accelerate and spread to other places. The Language Conservancy continues to utilize best-practice approaches: the methods and models we persistently refine to address the particular needs of each unique language.
The number of speakers produced as a result of a revitalization program best measures its effectiveness. That’s why we work hard, day by day, week by week, month by month to help create new speakers within the populations we support.
Over the long term, we strive to increase our support within communities as well as build networks of proficient speakers capable of spreading the language to future generations. Now and in the future, our vision is to create strong epicenters of indigenous languages.
