Our Language Revitalization Ethics

Cultural Survival’s Endangered Languages Program and this Language Gathering website project are Indigenous-driven, guided, and led, with local tribally-controlled language instruction programs fostering fluency receiving primary focus (versus scientific repository efforts intended for documentation and scholarly data collection), and retaining all rights to their intellectual property.
