Monthly Updates, Major Developments: Welcome to the Latest Edition of 'What Are Languages 4?'

Thanks for joining us again, Tim,

Greetings in the new year! As "What Are Languages 4?" returns, we reflect on the progress and learnings of 2023, stepping into 2024 with a strengthened resolve to advance Indigenous language revitalization.

2023: A Year of Insight and Growth

Last year was a testament to the power of community and the importance of our mission. Through challenges and conversations, we've honed our focus, particularly on enhancing representation in education. Understanding that Indigenous Peoples’ voices and stories are pivotal, we’re deepening our commitment to accurately reflecting their rich cultural backgrounds and languages in learning materials.

Recommitting to Our Core Mission

This year, we recommit to our foundational goals: preserving and revitalizing Indigenous languages with a renewed emphasis on language sovereignty. Our journey is shaped by the lessons learned, especially the critical role of representation in education, ensuring Indigenous cultures are portrayed with the depth and respect they deserve.

Looking Ahead with Optimism

Join us as we continue to evolve, drawing from the vibrant tapestry of Indigenous communities to enrich our work. Your engagement is crucial to our shared success, and we're excited to explore what 2024 holds for us all.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership. Together, we’re not just preserving languages; we’re fostering a future where every voice is heard and valued.

Warm regards,

The Languages 4™ Team

Happy New Year, Passionate Leaders and Language Advocates,

Though it's coming a bit later than usual, the delay is a testament to the incredible efforts we've put into reaching out and building upon an extraordinary first full year at Languages 4. Reflecting on our journey, I'm filled with pride and gratitude, yet mindful of the path that lies ahead.

In this message, I want to extend my deepest thanks for the meaningful conversations and invaluable connections we've fostered across Indian Country. Your support and insight have been pivotal to our growth and learning.

As we step into 2024, I'm eager to reaffirm our commitment to our shared mission. The lessons we've learned are guiding lights, shaping our strategy and actions for the future.

Exciting developments are on the horizon, and I can hardly wait to share more with you. Until then, thank you for your continued support, engagement, and belief in our vision.

Pidamaya (Thank you, in Dakota),
