LANGUAGE COURSES CREATED
CHARGED TO OUR COMMUNITY PARTNERS
"Sometimes, something as small as an online language course can become a catalyst for big things."
- Heather Souter, Métis and Michif Instructor
We are 7000 Languages. We create free online language-learning courses in partnership with Indigenous, minority, and refugee communities so they can keep their languages alive.
More than 7000 languages are spoken worldwide... and due to colonization and violence, nearly half of these languages are endangered.
Each language itself is valuable. But language revival is also linked to happier, healthier kids, advances in science, and more resilient communities.
When you help a community protect their language, you aren’t just protecting words – you’re protecting a cultural identity and the well-being of real people. 7000 Languages is a 501(c)(3) public charity and donors like you make our work possible.
If you would like to make a difference, please donate to support our work.

We envision a world where all communities have the resources and opportunities to reclaim, strengthen, and revitalize their endangered languages.
Empowerment & Ownership - We believe that Indigenous languages and the materials created for those languages belong to the community of ancestors, speakers, and descendants of those languages. We seek to cooperatively develop resources for each community to self-determine the future of their language.
Respect & Collaboration - We value the rights and traditions of others. We approach our relationships as guests, recognizing the leadership of our partners.
Diversity & Inclusion - We recognize the value and importance of each language for their communities. We believe every language strengthens humanity as a whole. Each and every community deserves the opportunity to teach, learn, and sustain their language.
Technology & Community Access - Communities should have access to technologies and support that assist their language journeys in ways that reflect their cultural values. We believe technology should reflect the community’s culture, practices, and ways of knowing.
