Keeping the language alive

Language is often intimately tied to culture.

However, nothing lasts forever, it seems. According to the research of some linguists, as many as 90 percent of the languages spoken on Earth today may go extinct over the next century as the last survivors who speak them die off.

Gertrude Smith, the Yavapai Culture Manager for the Yavapai-Apache Nation, talks May 9 about how the two tribes have begun to adopt each others’ customs following more than 100 years of being integrated together. The Yavapai and Apache tribes formally became a single sovereign nation in 1934.With each dead or forgotten language, humanity also loses the cultural perspective that can come along with it.

The ancient language of the Yavapai could very well be a candidate for that list, said Gertrude Smith, the new Yavapai culture manager at the Yavapai-Apache Nation Cultural Resource Center.

It’s something Smith is working hard to try to keep from happening.
