Tribes unite for global language movement

The three-day event, hosted by the CN, featured “Indigenous language warriors” from around the world both in person and virtually for discussions about effective language initiatives. CN Principal Chief Chuck Hoskin Jr. welcomed attendees inside the Chota Center on Jan. 5 for the international effort.

“Our language is our identity as Native peoples and our identity is everything,” he said. “Language is what makes us unique. It’s the chain that links us to our past, and it’s what binds us together today.”
