A Stream of Voices

Around the world, people and communities are working to reclaim and revitalize their languages in the face of the global crisis of language endangerment. In this series, presented in collaboration with the Endangered Languages Project, communities explore some of the methods and approaches they’re using—and the lessons they wish to share in keeping their languages vital and strong. The series title is drawn from Dr. Emmanuel Ngué Um.
