Revitalization takes on many forms. It can be an immersion school, signs being put up in a land’s indigenous language, or even abstract imagery found in paintings.
Technology has also helped. A search in the app store on your phone will show you that many language learning programs exist. One of the most popular brands, Duolingo, even offers courses in Hawaiian and Navajo.
Though this is all helpful, Dallas Hunt recognizes that it’s hard to fully learn a language on ones own. He states the importance of having enough speakers to properly converse with so languages can successfully live on.
With that thought in mind, some governments and organizations are implementing policies to help indigenous communities keep their languages alive.
