Each country has museums to show the beauty of the art of the region.
Most countries have some kind of orchestra to play music from the past and present.
Preserving smaller languages is valuable in a similar way, but it is also valuable for another reason.
Each language on this planet contains within it a specific way of looking at life.
It is coded in the structure of the language.
Each language also contains a specific way of solving various problems.
These perspectives or systems of seeing vary from language to language.
A problem that maybe difficult to solve in one cultural/language perspective may be easy to solve when viewed through the lens of a different one.
Small languages are more than just curiosities.
They are a vital part of human history and a tool for solving the challenges of today.
