This article discusses emerging research on youth and Indigenous languages. Based on a comparative and international Indigenous education study in Peru and the United States, the intersection between Indigenous community spaces, schools, and languages is examined. Given global trends of Indigenous language loss, comparative research provides the opportunity for exploration of these challenges in distinct settings where youth can help redefine local and national language and education policy as critical stakeholders and actors.
