It is great to finally have a forum for the discussion of issues surrounding indigenous languages in which people of all walks of life from around the globe can share their ideas, knowledge, concerns, experiences, and solutions to often daunting tasks. I encourage everyone interested in the survival and promotion of indigenous languages to participate in this dynamic community-building dialogic process. Indigenous Language SPEAK is a place for learning and sharing for the betterment of our world. I study at the University of New Mexico and I will be mostly sharing issues that we are faced with here in the Southwest (U.S.A.). I currently work with Navajo and Tewa, which are two unrelated languages spoken in the area. peace.
