Celebrating the U.N. Year of Indigenous Languages with Perry Bellegarde and Wade Davis
"Languages play a crucial role in our daily lives. They are not only our first medium for communication, education and social integration, but are also at the heart of each person’s unique identity, cultural history and memory."
—United Nations, Department of Economic and Social Affairs
