Edmonton has the second largest Indigenous population of all Canadian cities, second only to Winnipeg. Many of our citizens are searching for ways to regain their lost language and reconnect with their cultural identity. Through our language lessons, learners become empowered by learning ᓀᐦᐃᔭᐍᐏᐣ (Plains Cree language) using the traditional and historical way of language transmission. This helps participants to reclaim and strengthen their own cultural and linguistic heritage while also ensuring the survival of this language. The program also provides opportunities for students to make connections with community leaders and elders during guest speaker visits.
