This presentation examines the important role of Native American heritage language enrichment programs for school-based Indigenous language learning in the United States. This presentation will review relevant research from the field as well as research-based vignettes from a Dine language enrichment program. Through a collaborative conversation format we can think through potential pathways to create heritage language programs that promote additive bilingualism and create a strong sense of cultural identity to empower families and students.
