Indigenous languages were forcibly taken from children at Residential Schools. Children were punished for speaking their language. Now, over generations, few Indigenous people are fluent in their Indigenous language. Many Indigenous languages are considered endangered, but Indigenous language champions are helping the next generation learn this integral element of culture. The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples Article 13 states Indigenous people have the right to revitalize their languages. Part of Canada's Truth and Reconciliation calls to action also require support for Indigenous language revitalization.
