Our research over the indigenous populations in North America provides an in-depth look at linguistic diversity and the posed threats to the languages and cultures of indigenous populations. We will analyze the disproportionate lack of education about, resources for, and ongoing consequences of Covid-19 on indigenous populations.

This poster will provide a linguistic analysis of the treatment of indigenous populations in North America as well as the effect of Covid-19 on native languages. We propose a method to respectfully conserve indigenous languages and provide accessible resources for older generations for the purpose of preserving language and culture.
