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.

The truth about Indian Boarding Schools
This month, we’re asking our readers to help us raise $10,000 to fund our year-long journalism initiative called “The Indian Boarding School Project: A Dark Chapter in History.” Our mission is to shine a light on the dark era of forced assimilation of native American children by the U.S. government and churches. You’ll be able to read stories each week and join us for Livestream events to understand what the Indian Boarding School era has meant to Native Americans — and what it still means today.
This news will be provided free for everyone to read, but it is not free to produce. That’s why we’re asking you to make a donation this month to help support our efforts. Any contribution of any amount — big or small — gives us a better, stronger future and allows us to remain a force for change. Donate to Native News Online today and support independent Indigenous journalism. Thank you.
