Google Earth launched a new interactive project Friday aimed at preserving Indigenous languages from around the world.

Featuring 55 languages from 27 different countries, the project invites users to explore the globe while listening to audio clips from Indigenous language speakers, as well as written anecdotes describing why the preservation and revitalization of their culture and language is important.

The UN has named 2019 the International Year of Indigenous Languages, and Google launched its project on Indigenous Peoples Day to mark the occasion.
