The indigenous languages of the world are in general those considered to be the most endangered. In some places children are no longer learning these languages. Often only old people speak them well. People concerned with these issues include language speakers, linguists, teachers and others. Because languages are a part of peoples lives and cultures it is important that we all work together.
The goal of this forum is to provide a place for linguists, language speakers, educators and any other interested people to discuss any issues regarding language loss, language research, and fieldwork methodology within indigenous communities.

    hi, this is a great sight. it would be great to see some entries on aboriginal languages in Canada. John Steckley is involved with trying to get the Huron or Wendat language going again . . . and is starting to train teachers in Wendake, Quebec. Are there going to be any more entries in 2009. I’d like to follow this blog.
