Language and Place: Returning Language to Place with Respect and Honour
Many Nations are directing great energy into language revitalization projects. But what are the impacts of settler descendants having access to traditional languages before those whose land we stand upon are themselves able to return to these learnings? This conversation will unpack some of the complexity and begin the conversation around how those of us from other places can support this work.
Pre-work request: Squamish Language Revival (youtube video)
This free virtual event is the first of four in a series called Language and Place: unpacking the complexity of decolonizing our tongues and actions. Led by Meagan Innes and Senaqwila Wyss with a weekly guest from our Artist in Residence Program (Jolene Andrew, Cease Wyss, Jaz Whitford and Tori Clark)
Registration is required for each event, all of which have a max of 20 spaces.
These will be recorded for internal use only towards creation of a document that maps the learnings for future sharing.
