It Is Those Songs, It Is Those Prayers, and Everything That We Do in Our Language That Connect Us


“When you lose that language, you lose your culture completely. Because it is those songs, it is those prayers, and everything that we do in our language that connect us -- not just with each other, and with our community -- but also with everything around us.” -Deleta Gasco Smith (Anishinabek)

From "Native American boarding schools have nearly killed Michigan's native language" on www.michiganradio.org
