Navajo is the most widely spoken Amerindian language within the borders of the United States, with 170,000 speakers. It would be a great investment in American culture and education to give students the option to choose an indigenous language as an elective in public schools. Learning a language not only improves the function of the brain and teaches the value of discipline and hardwork, but there is also the benefit of seeing the world in the terms of the people who speak that language, and so teaching Navajo would allow students across the US to expand their understanding of the world and see it in the terms of the indigenous people of this continent.
