Brian’s dream is to engage Native youth with the Cherokee language by bringing the language into everyday community activities. The program will do this with gardening, signs in grocery stores in Cherokee, language classes, and collaboration with elders.

"Language is central in how our people define ourselves and how we view, describe, dream, and share the world with others. Language is central to our identity...

I believe creating spaces and environments where the language can be both useful and relevant is the key to revitalization. " -Brian
