Native Languages Program
Before Spanish and English became dominant languages in the Americas, Native people of North and South America spoke hundreds to thousands of languages that not only define us as people but shaped our traditions, teachings, spirituality, and way of life as Original People of this Continent and is why we plan to emphasize Indigenous Education that aims to offer classes that promote native language preservation and revival for multiple native communities.
The Native Languages Program is a free program to the community sponsored by Society of Native Nations with the help of other organizations and communities in hopes to help create the space for the native languages to be taught, learned and preserved. We look to raise funds through private donors, grants, and fundraiser events so that we may continue to offer these classes for all people wanting to learn the native languages of their people that cannot afford to pay for such classes or know where to go to learn. We also set up a live feed for those that cannot attend the classes so that they may still learn via Facebook live video set up during the classes.
We work with any and all native communities that look for and request help in supporting a native language class teaching the native language of their people.
All raised funds are much appreciated and help us to offer the languages classes to the community.

Acompáñenos en una clase introductoria del lenguaje Nahuatl, uno de los varios lenguajes originarios de este continente antes de la invasion del colonialismo.
Antes de que el Español y el Ingles fueran idiomas dominantes en las Americas, nuestros pueblos originarios hablaban cientos de idiomas que nos solo nos identificaban como pueblos, sino tambien formaban parte de nuestras tradiciones, rituales y filosofias como Gente Originaria de este continente.
