National language and culture need to be inherited. Clarifying the practical strategies and paths for scientific protection and inheritance of minority languages is a powerful measure to promote the protection of minority languages. Based on the perspective of language ecology, this paper discusses the status quo and significance of minority language protection and inheritance from the perspective of the relationship between language essence, value and language ecological elements, and in combination with the language reality of the Micha people in Yunnan. On this basis, we clearly point out that bilingual education reform and information technology empowerment are the path to effectively protect the inheritance of minority languages. Linguistic ecology provides a new perspective for the study of minority languages, and there is a long way to go in protecting and inheriting minority languages.
