Whano mai taku reo, hīkina ake ki te atakura.
Karangahia! Whaikōrerotia! Wānangahia!

Come my language, come face the morning.
Breath from Earth Mother! From Sky Father!

Embracing Multilingualism Across Educational Contexts brings together researchers, practitioners, and community stakeholders from around the world to present international case studies of multilingualism in education. This book seeks to empower the speakers and teachers of heritage, Indigenous, and minority languages around the world, as translanguaging also seeks to do. It challenges research agendas and pushes our understanding of linguistic terminology, especially in areas of social justice. At times examining classroom teaching and at times examining language policy, Embracing Multilingualism Across Educational Contexts showcases the value of and gains made when embracing multilingualism in education.
