Preserving and Protecting languages & cultures

In Indigenous, International Dialogue



It is through language and cultural expression that we describe our world and our understanding of it. Every time language is lost and culture disappears, we lose a unique perspective or view of how we make sense of human existence. These writers believe in the power of language and culture and are determined to ensure that these languages and cultures survive. With authors: Joséphine Bacon, Diane Carmel Léger, Waubgeshig Rice, Marie-Claire Blais, Alain Deneault, Paul Seesequasis. Moderation: Kim Thúy

Subtitles in English, French and German are available.
