Indigenous Language Revitalization by April Charlo she reflects upon how indigenous languages differ in there internal expression, using the example of "My" or "Mine" and the internal language rules revolving around the use of this phrase , 

Language is tightly integrated with how a culture integrates itself in the world - with  values such as ownership defining how we talk about our relationships with each other and the natural world.

April is the Executive Director of Nkwusum Language Institute on the Salish, Kootenai, Flathead Indian Reservation. She teaches indigenous languages and has learned how cultural differences have evolved.
