Language is Life biennial conference involves California Indians coming together to share their experiences and aspirations for language revitalization. During Language is Life participants get ideas from each other, and attend a wide array of workshops and lectures on language teaching and learning methods, family language and cultural practices, funding, recording and computer technology, language research, and other relevant topics.

It is held every two years and was last held in Sanger, California at Wonder Valley Ranch.
