I'm a member of Romuva - Lithuanian Pre-Christian Faith.

We do view it as very important to understand the culture of the ancient Balts and to know the language. I am fortunate as in I am fluent in the language, having grown up with it. It is difficult to understand the religious and spiritual beliefs of a cultural group if one doesn't understand the culture itself. For Lithuanians their greatest cultural treasure is the language, so yes, it is strongly encouraged that all those involved in Romuva learn the language.
