Languages/ Saltwater Buddha/ Eric Cash/ Triplets

Native American Languages Many Native American languages have died or are at risk of dying. A California bill aims to change that by creating an American Indian language teaching credential. Today on Insight, what's the state of California's indigenous languages? And how would a teaching credential help save them? We'll talk with the author of the bill and two Native American teachers.
