The Importance of Language:

Keeping Our Mother Tongues

Our video is focused around language revitalization. The video begins with interviews of students all stating that they do not know their native language or are trying to learn their native language. The video then goes forth into interviews and images of why native languages have died down and have reached critical conditions. The reasons include boarding schools and political and social discrimination. The video ends with language revitalization today and why knowing your native language is important.
