Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Stephan Greymorning has done an exceptional job with this collection of articles. This little book brings new voices and new perspectives to the topic of language revitalization. Most importantly, the chapters reflect indigenous viewpoints and experiences. While the entire collection is invaluable, the two chapters I found most useful were those written by the two Maori contributors: Moana Jackson and Rachel Selby. These writers inform those of us in North America of the similarities and differences in the struggles of indigenous people world wide. At the same time, all the chapters show the unitedness of our struggle to keep our cultures and languages.

I bought this as a textbook for an anthropology class I was taking. It was extremely informative and provides a lot of supporting information and suplemental readings. Even though this is not for my major, I do plan on keeping this book.
