Native Tongues: The Languages That Once Mapped the American Landscape Have Almost Vanished.
Lord, Nancy
Winds of Change, v14 n2 p60-62 Spr 1999
Languages reflect and reinforce cultural values, giving insights into their speakers' world view and relationships to the natural environment. Indigenous languages help us to respect local knowledge and extend our sense of community to the larger world. However, despite bilingual education in schools, all Native American languages are endangered; only people and communities can keep them alive. (TD)
