Indigenous languages connect Indigenous people to their history, identity and to the land itself. Indigenous language revitalization is necessary to healing our communities and requires adequate support from all levels of government. Friendship Centres are uniquely positioned to support language revitalization in urban centres through their network of Indigenous community leaders.
