The GNWT’s Department of Education, Culture and Employment is sharing their experiences from last month with an Indigenous Language Training course.

The course was through the University of Alberta’s Canadian Indigenous Languages and Literacy Development Institute (CILLDI).

The lessons were held as an early celebration for Indigenous Languages Month, which is March here in the territory.
