An Ethnography of Language Revitalization in a Northern Athabaskan Community
We Are Our Language provides an investigation of language revitalization based on local language renewal efforts. This book reveals the subtle ways in which different conceptions and practices—historical, material, and interactional—can variably affect the state of an indigenous language, and it offers a critical step toward redefining success and achieving revitalization.
