Ontario Hubs: Reviving Lost Languages

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Ian McCallum, an Indigenous language educator and Shelby Lisk, our Ontario Hubs reporter on Indigenous issues, have both embarked on learning the languages of their family ancestry. For McCallum that's Lunaape, and he's one of only a handful of people who understand it. For Lisk, it's Mohawk. They talk to Jeyan Jeganathan about their journeys to unlock their culture and history through language and why it's important for Indigenous languages to re-emerge and be preserved.
