The purpose of the Symposium is to assemble researchers and educators from Indigenous communities of the Americas who are concerned about the preservation of Indigenous languages in the midst of rapidly expanding global influences. Our aim is to facilitate an international dialogue about policy issues that will foster a better understanding of the unique challenges facing Indigenous communities in the maintenance and survival of their respective languages. Our goal is to explore the commonalities that will help build collaborative support and advocacy of Indigenous language maintenance efforts by bringing together scholars and advocates representing diverse language communities.
