A bit of context on this next series of photos: Dharamshala, India is where the exiled government of Tibet resides. Led by the Dalai Lama, nearly 100,000 Tibetan refugees live in this northern Indian city, where they seek to maintain their traditions and culture in exile. The long journey from Tibet to India includes a grueling 28 day walk through the Himalayan mountains. Many of the refugees make this trek as children, sent by their parents in hopes of studying their language and religion in freedom. In conclusion, here’s a young Tibetan monk playing with a kitten.

Language Maps of the US.

Why wasn’t this the first one I saw!? This is so much more interesting!!

I LOVE THIS I LOVE THIS WOW

Why is Hawaii’s Navajo?

Maybe whoever drew this up decided not to include Hawaiian as a Native American language? I dunno much about language families, but if Hawaiian was more closely related to the languages of the Pacific islands than the native languages of the North American continent (I don’t know if it is, I’m just guessing) they might have decided that it belonged in a separate category.

Or maybe there really are just more Navajo speakers than Hawaiian speakers.

Etymology/language side of Tumblr: any insight?

Actually, I was just wondering how Navajo got there.

I shall summon…
