How relevant are our mother-tongue (indigenous languages)?
In the year 2022, how relevant are our mother tongue (indigenous languages)? My personal view is that, it is important for one to celebrate their heritage. How can we say we celebrate our heritage around the world if we don't care about our customs, traditions and mother tongue - and even letting them die?
What is our excuse?
Most of the world, in 2022, are no longer under colonialism or its rule. I notice people are suddenly doing their DNA tests, they're trying to find out who they are and their ancestral lineage. At the moment, it has become a pressing matter, throughout all ethnic spectrums.
What are festive Seasons truly for?
The holidays and festive season are upon us, the majority have just celebrated thanksgiving and soon we shall have Christmas. My opinion is that, especially these holidays, are for family time. The coming together of families. Some travel far and wide to be with their loved ones during these occasions, uncles, aunts, grandma, grandpa and the joy of people freely expressing themselves and hearing their mother tongue. These occasions are not really so much about food, but about the joy of life and family.
So why would people not make an effort to speak, read and write their mother tongue? How busy are we?
