Mission Statement

Our Vision

The Apache Language Consortium’s mission is to preserve the Apache language. We believe that the Arizona Apache language has an inherent right to exist—that it is a fundamental and irreplaceable facet of the Apache people’s culture and humanity’s linguistic heritage. ALC dedicates itself to restoring the threatened language of Arizona Apache to stability and health and documenting the benefits of language recovery to the indigenous Apache community and individuals. ALC increases international public awareness of language loss and reclamation and supports indigenous tribes committed to revitalizing their languages.
