In a recent study conducted by National Geographic, Interior Salish is a language family at the severe threat level for languages near extinction and one of the few hotspots of language endangerment across the world. The fact that Interior Salish spans several states and into international boarders with Canada makes language revitalization even more difficult. "Revitalizing Endangered Languages" is a short film, directed by Jake LaMere, that reflects on the Interior Salish languages, culture, and stories through interviews with elders, teachers, and youth at the 2010 Celebrating Interior Salish Conference, in an effort to raise awareness of the importance to revitalize the Interior Salish language group.
