Language is the Foundation

Language is the foundation of our uniqueness 
that we must pass down to our children.  

It is the storyboard that connects us to our culture (tradition, religion, history)

As it tells us of who we are,
Where we came from, 
And what we believe in.  

It is important to know the struggles our people have gone through and will continue 
To do just to live our culture, 
Otherwise the language and culture will be erased.
