This spring, in preparation for the 2020 Summer Language Intensive, the WAYK team will spend 8 weeks working with the Tsleil-Waututh Nation Department of Culture and Language to further develop their novice-level curriculum for Sḵwx̱wú7mesh sníchim. TWN’s Department of Culture and Language is strongly supported by the Nation and supplementally funded through the Aboriginal Languages Initiative (ALI) and the British Columbia Languages Initiative (BCLI). TWN’s language program also collaborates with other entities in the region: Squamish Nation, Simon Fraser University’s Adult Immersion Program, and Kwi Awt Stelmexw. This event is open only to previous participants.
