Keeping Language Alive

Image

What do you do when your language is fading? Some have taken to recording the language of their culture, ensuring that generations afterward would be able to hear the words of their forebearers. Some have written books and taught classes, using their educational platform as a way to excite potential new speakers into learning their language. The Blackfoot people, however, have a slightly different way to raise awareness. The Blackfoot tribe and their language has been dwindling for some time. The years have not been kind to the proud people, but they are not one to be taken without a fight. For four years, hundreds of eager runners have been participating in the marathon over the Blackfoot lands, and the attention has brought about some positive changes. The run is no small thing. From horizon to horizon, 435 miles of open desert awaits those willing to shoulder the challenging run. Taking up to four days for the runners to complete, tribe officials are sure there has been a positive outcome.

More people have been paying attention to the needs of the tribe, and the run is a perfect way for people with links to the Blackfoot people to feel a part of their culture. The run is through Blackfoot territory, and meant to immerse the runner in land they would normally never get to experience. .

Tribe leaders hope by reconnecting bonds felt only tenuously by distant relatives, they will be able to rekindle a spark of interest in their culture. Coinciding with the race, a year-long webinar is being launched to reinvigorate interest in the tribe’s history
