“It is time that we begin insisting that language become apart of our identity… At all levels and at all costs. Nothing else will make sure we are still Tlingit, still Haida, and still Tsimshian. Without our languages we are darker skinned card carrying white people. Who know how to fish, hunt, dance, but cannot speak with our ancestors. I am sorry if that hurts your feelings I don’t want to hurt anyone. But I also know what we have going on is just not quite enough and if you feel hurt or guilt then perhaps that is your ancestors are calling you to the table. ” – Xh’unei Being a nerd re-listening to: http://bit.ly/1MDwLsS
