Nehiyaw Language Program
September 8, 2020 - June 30, 2021
The Nehiyaw Language Program offers an opportunity for our Indigenous community members to reclaim and celebrate their own languages and traditions. It is evident in the Indigenous community that reconnection to Indigenous culture is a powerful tool for recovery, healing, empowerment, and prosperity. This program intends to make those essential connections to a culture that have been lost over generations of western practice that suppressed Indigenous culture in pursuit of societal assimilation through the Residential School system while also strengthening literacy in the community through meaningful engagement.
