Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
We have an abundance of fluent speakers in our local area who are willing to support the projects. The high school and youth have a vast amount of knowledge in technology who have started working on language initiatives. Our communities have an abundance of resources such as books, dictionaries and people committed to language revitalization.
Challenges: 
The fluent speakers are aging. Silent speakers require an opportunity to hear and speak the language. Babies need an environment where they can be immersed in language.
