Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
The very few language speakers that are still around are all ready to pass on their knowledge to the younger generation that are willing to learn. The materials that have been made by past generations are still available resources.
Challenges: 
Language speakers in our community are dwindling in numbers and that language is slowly dying. There are very few speakers left to preserve the almost lost language.
