Stabilizing Indigenous Languages: An Interview With NAU Professor Jon Reyhner

From http://www.knau.org/post/stabilizing-indigenous-languages-interview-nau-professor-jon-reyhner

This weekend, Northern Arizona University will host an international conference on stabilizing indigenous languages. Language experts estimate that hundreds - if not thousands - of native languages have been lost worldwide over the last century, mainly due to the influence of outside cultures and ideologies. Jon Reyhner teaches bi-lingual multicultural education at NAU. He spoke with Arizona Public Radio's Gillian Ferris about what it means to stabilize these languages.
