‘Listening to families in our area all requesting the same thing, which is access to language’
A new program for Indigenous families in the area looks to help restore a language that was taken away from them during colonization.
The Upper Grand District School Board and the Dufferin-Peel Catholic DSB will be launching Anishinaabemowin Nanda-gikendan – “Seeking to Learn the Language,” in September.
The program will teach participants the basics of the Anishinaabemowin (Ojibway) language while also sharing aspects of the Anishinaabek culture with community guests and hands-on activities. There will be no age limit to join and no prior knowledge of the language is required.
