Title Indigenous Languages Shift and Maintenance in Fourth World Settings
Description:Indigenous Languages Shift and Maintenance in Fourth World Settings
Abstract: "This paper considers some problematic relationships of language and speech in Fourth World situations, and it provides an overview of the current language situation among the Gitksans, an indigenous people of British Columbia.  It closes with some discussion of theory and method in studies of language shift and maintenance, and it suggests that attention be given to
situations where language maintenance policies and programs are options having some chance of success."
