Help Support Language Revitalization

Support the Lingua Bear
project any time

Through this project, we aim to raise awareness about language extinction and to empower the communities most affected by linguistic and cultural homogenization. Just like biology tells us that diverse ecosystems are more likely to survive and thrive, the lessons learned from history show us that the most culturally diverse societies have been better able to overcome challenges and prosper.

Any effort to preserve and protect a language and its culture from extinction is an effort to protect humanity—our accumulated wisdom, knowledge, and history live in our languages. 

Thank you for your support, we couldn’t do it without remarkable language revitalization advocates like you! 


Lingua Bear Production
Via Peluches Alacrán

Lingua Bear is sewn in Xonacatlán, a Nahuatl speaking town tucked in the Sierra Nevada mountains about an hour from Mexico City. Our plush toy stands out by providing a way to learn indigenous languages alongside dialects of major languages.

Through our different lists of words, phrases, and songs we offer a way to learn each language’s grammar and vocabulary while creating a window into its culture and traditions. This was inspired by the Golden Record, which was a kind of time capsule, intended to communicate a story of our world to extraterrestrials.
