First Nations leader stresses languages

Little Bear said in order to make real changes, young people need to connect with the old people in order to keep languages and culture alive, which are important for First Nation identity. "Let's suppose I woke up 200 years from now. Will I hear any Cree? Will I hear any Blackfoot?" he asked.
