First Nation Elders share language skills with UBC students

A language game to share with the younger generation

A session using WAYK to teach an aboriginal language. I wonder if anyone is offering this in the Mi'kmaq language?

"The Splatsin elders recently came to UBC's Okanagan campus to play a verbal game with students in Christine Schreyer's endangered languages course. The goal was to teach the elders a language game they could take home and share with the younger generation. In exchange, UBC students learned some Secwepemc (Shuswap) language.
