abstract
Every fourteen days a language dies. The loss of language threatens the roots of family life and social structure in most aboriginal communities. Fortunately there are unique individuals and organizations across the country who are aiming to beat the odds. Not only are they using innovative strategies to maintain the basic functions of their languages, they are finding entertaining ways to prreserve their creative and cognitive spirit as well.
