Executive Order on Native American Language Preservation Would Step Up Federal Language Preservation Efforts

From http://falmouthinstitute.com/language/2011/07/executive-order-on-native-american-language-preservation-would-step-up-federal-language-preservation-efforts

The National Congress of the American Indian, along with a number of language rights and American Indian rights groups, is urging President Obama to sign an Executive Order on Native American Language Revitalization. The order was drafted after a meeting last year between senior White House Staff and representatives from Native American communities across the nation. If signed, it would strengthen the Native American Languages Act and the Esther Martinez Native American Languages Preservation Act.
