The Potawatomi language is at a critically endangered level, with less than 10 fluent speakers still alive, and not nearly enough students to learn from them. A language is what a culture uses to define itself, and the Potawatomi language contains a wealth of knowledge about the natural world, ceremonies, and spiritual beliefs. The Potawatomi language plays a critical role in Potawatomi ceremonies and cultural teachings, and to lose such precious resources would result in the further erosion and possible eventual disappearance of Traditional Potawatomi Culture.
Dedicated to the Preservation, Revitalization, Utilization, and Dissemination of the Potawatomi Language.
Donald A. Perrot is an enrolled member of the Prairie Band Potawatomi Nation. He is an Elder, a Veteran, and a Heritage Fluent Speaker of this language.
