The Language Conservancy believes that all languages have an inherent right to exist - that they are irreplaceable embodiments of a people’s culture, subtle records of histories and ethical systems specific to their place. All humanity is enriched by awareness of the world’s linguistic heritage. Our Mission We are dedicated to rescuing the world’s endangered languages, restoring them to vital use, and safeguarding them for future generations. The Language Conservancy helps prevent the extinction of languages by 1) raising funds for research, 2) increasing the international public awareness of the social and personal consequences of indigenous language loss, and 3) providing technical support to organizations and communities engaged in revitalizing their languages.
Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Indigenous languages have been the early victims of historical pressures whose effects are only now starting to be fully realized in retrospect. Given current trends, an estimated 90% of the world’s 6000 languages will become extinct or near-extinct in the next 100 years. In the United States alone, perhaps only a dozen Native American languages of the original 400-500 have a chance of surviving beyond the next thirty years – a single generation holds the future of Navaho, Lakota, Ojibway and others in their hands. Government aid for this problem has been severely limited and the few grant-making private foundations working on language revitalization are strained by the demand. There are very few organizations working to rescue the world’s endangered languages. The Language Conservancy is uniquely positioned to become a vital player in this cultural preservation movement.
