Language Revitalization presentation evening

How you would feel if the language you spoke was nearing extinction? How would you feel if you spoke and no one understood a word you said? We often are devastated by the thought of adorable pandas becoming extinct, but we often fail to realize the importance of a language becoming extinct, a loss of cultural heritage and identity for its speakers.

On Wednesday, November 26th in the Earth Sciences building, room 4001 at 6:00 PM, the students of LIN 458: Revitalizing Languages will be sharing their work aimed at preserving and reinvigorating the Huron Wendat language. They would like to invite all department members, friends, and alumni to attend and learn more about this endangered language and find out what you can do to support the revitalization efforts!
