Going to the Water: Cherokee Perspectives on Cherokee Culture

Language is so important. The language we choose to express ourselves in, the individual words we choose, and keeping traditional languages alive and living, moving with the cultures they are a part of. Part of why multilingual people are generally smart is because they’re using more of their brains.

Language encapsulates culture, heritage, ethnicity, and life.
