Summary

It is through language and the expression of culture that we describe our world and our understanding of it. Thus, each time language and culture disappears, we lose a unique approach or vision of how we understand human existence. In a 30-minute interview, we will discuss this premise with Michel Jean and how it is represented through his work, his Aboriginal origins and his language (French in North America).
