    Native Languages in ‘Extreme Danger’

    A recent article appearing on HuffingtonPost.com by Lance A. Twitchell, an assistant professor of Alaska Native Languages for the University of Alaska Southeast, discusses the importance of preserving Native American languages. He says that all Native languages are in “extreme danger” and that some will be gone in the next decade, unless people begin the arduous task of saving them.
