VIDEO: What is Language Loss

Language loss is a profound and pressing issue that affects communities around the world. As languages vanish, so too does a vital part of our collective human heritage. The impact of language loss goes beyond mere words and grammar, extending to cultural identity, knowledge systems, and intergenerational connections. It erodes the intricate tapestry of diversity, robbing us of unique perspectives and deep-rooted traditions. In an effort to shed light on this critical subject, a thought-provoking short film has been created, delving into the profound repercussions of language loss and the urgent need for revitalization.

Produced by 2022 HIP Interns and Youth-to-Youth participants, Daniella Harrison and Sara Currie, this film invites us to contemplate the immeasurable value of language and the imperative of preserving it for generations to come.
