About Us >> Mission >>

The American Indian Language Development Institute's (AILDI) mission is to mobilize efforts to document, revitalize and promote Indigenous languages, reinforcing the processes of intergenerational language transfer. AILDI plays a critical role in ongoing outreach, training, and collaborative partnerships with educators, schools and Indigenous communities nationally and internationally through the use of multiple resources.
  Phil Cash Cash and AILDI participant
"I'm here for a purpose. Someone was praying for me to reach higher in my educational goals. With a higher education and surrounded by mountains - I can move mountains. I will reach out as an advocate for my community members - This has always been their dream to revive our language. For it's who we are."
