About this campaign
The Haayk Foundation is excited to unveil a new design which weaves together traditional Tsimshian formline and language. On a sapphire blue background, David Robert Boxley has created a stylized face singing the lyrics, "Naandza dip ho'on laxha da na lip algyagm," which comes from the song, We Can Speak For Ourselves, written by Gavin Hudson, and means, “let us fill the air with our own language!” Taken together, this reprepresents our shared efforts to move beyond simply preserving our language, to actually speaking and singing as our beloved ancestors did.
All the proceeds from this online fundraiser will go toward fulfilling our mission: “To rapidly cultivate new fluent speakers of Sm’algya̱x and to produce learning resources for any and all interested learners.” We appreciate your continued support.
Dm aap’ag̱m goo la loom da na lip algya̱g̱m. We will remember what you've done for our language. Wayi wah!
