CHICAGO - The American Indian comedic group, 1491s released this video to have Native people from  from Indian country record themselves saying "I love you" in their Native langauge.

The result is the "Indigenous Love Words Project" video.

Happy Valentine's Day Everyone! We are all LOVED!

With Valentine's Day upon us again, Native News Online felt it appropriate to feature the video again.

This is a beautiful project. Watch and enjoy. Some of the Native language is almost musical.

Megwetch (thank you) 1491s for capturing various Indigenous languages on the video. This type of video is a vivid reminder of what was lost and, fortunately, was not completely destroyed!

Native languages are quite beautiful and powerful.

These stories must be heard.

This May, we are highlighting our coverage of Indian boarding schools and their generational impact on Native families and Native communities. Giving survivors of boarding schools and their descendants the opportunity to share their stories is an important step toward healing — not just because they are speaking, but because they are being heard. Their stories must be heard. Help our efforts to make sure Native stories and Native voices are heard in 2024.
