Native American Language Revitalization Legislation in the 113th Congress
The Linguistic Society of America (LSA) is engaged in a campaign to educate and inform members of the U.S. Congress about the benefits of Native American language revitalization.
There are two bills currently pending in both houses of Congress which seek to enhance efforts to revitalize Native American languages:
- H.R.726/S.2299 Native American Languages Reauthorization Act of 2014
- H.R.4214/S.1948 Native Language Immersion Student Achievement Act
The Center for Applied Linguistics supports the Linguistic Society of America and its Committee on Endangered Languages and their Preservation (CELP) to raise awareness within Congress about the importance of Native American Language Revitalization.
