The words by which people live

Keep in mind that we are committed to maintaining a safe environment where everyone is welcome to speak and encouraged to speak. We will be adhering to the following guidelines to make sure all participants are respectful, encouraging of others, and not engaging in harmful or exclusive language or behaviors.

These are the guidelines for our conversations and lessons. Please make sure that you are adhering to these values, and that you are doing your part to be an active learner and respectful user of Lingít.

• Correct with kindness.
• Speak with love.
• Give everyone a chance to speak; we need to hear everyone’s voices.
• No homophobia. We include everyone. Our language is not binary in our identification.
• Unless someone asks for help, you are not to correct them immediately.
• This is a safe space. Names should not be attributed to individuals out of this space.
• Don’t be afraid. Your mistakes help you and others learn.
