The Race to Save the World's Endangered Languages

City Club Friday Forum, Friday, April 3

Native American Ho-Chunk elders prophecy that when their language is lost, the world itself will end. In a sense, this is true, for the world contained within their language — the hundreds of generations of history, culture, tradition and understanding of the local environment — will disappear when the final speaker of that language passes on. Unless, that is, those who speak this language are able to teach it to future generations.
