One Man, Two Languages: Confessions of a Freedom-Loving Bilingual
Littlebear, Richard
Tribal College Journal of American Indian Higher Education, v15 n3 p10-12 Spr 2004
When the movement for "English Only" began some years ago, the author told participants at a bilingual education workshop that he was against it. He was rendered momentarily mute because he had thought that the English Only proponents could not curtail the freedom of expression guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. The way he understood them, the framers of the Constitution guaranteed freedom of expression. He has often questioned the direction this country takes in regards to civil rights, human rights, and especially the freedom to express ourselves. The ideals propounded in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights are excellent.
