Endangered Languages Program

Every language is an old-growth forest of the mind,

a watershed of thought, an ecosystem of spiritual possibilities.

-Wade Davis, anthropologist

Biological and cultural diversity form the living matrix for a healthy, sustainable human-Earth relationship. The ability of indigenous societies to communicate their vast knowledge learned over many generations is held in their languages. We believe supporting the resuscitation of those languages that are threatened with extinction is of paramount importance; thus the Endangered Languages Program.

For now, we are concentrating on indigenous languages that are endangered in North America and Siberia because of our experience in these territories. A key part of the Program is grants dissemination for projects directly working on preservation/rebirth of these languages.
