The Language Conservancy works with Native American communities across the United States assisting them in the documentation, preservation, and revitalization of their endangered languages. Through training sessions and technological and linguistic support, The Language Conservancy helps build capacity for tribal language programs and helps in the distribution of language resources. In 2020 and 2021, funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities helped The Language Conservancy and its partner organizations—the Lakota Language Consortium and the Crow Language Consortium—create significant resources aimed at revitalizing the Lakota, Arizona Apache, and Crow languages.
