It is important to remember that AI tools like ChatGPT are not a complete solution to language preservation, but rather a complementary resource in the revitalization process. Collaboration with Indigenous communities, elders, and language experts is essential to ensure that AI technologies are designed and implemented in ways that respect and uphold Indigenous values and knowledge. As we embrace the power of technology to aid in language learning and preservation, we must also prioritize the voices and expertise of the Indigenous communities themselves, paving the way for a future where Indigenous languages and cultures continue to flourish.
