    Hi Apihtawikosisan,

    I remember you writing in a blog entry that Canadians should begin to learn the native language of the area they live in. However, because there are so many native languages, is there one that would give me a more advantage in learning?

    Thanks.

    • There really isn’t much ‘social/economic capital’ in learning any Indigenous language…which is a serious factor in continuing language decline. In terms of “which language would allow me to understand the most number of related languages”, I’d got for Cree or Anishinaabemowin. Both of these languages are very related to one another, and once you start to learn one you quickly see the similarities in the other. Together, you would be covering a very large geographic area where these languages are used. BUT, I am a bit biased 😀
