Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
We have various certified language teachers that are willing to teach in all of our communities. All of our communities have access to internet services and community halls, meeting rooms, classrooms in which to teach language and culture.
Challenges: 
Funding for implementing language and culture projects is always hard to access. We are loosing fluent speakers, like most aboriginal communities, each year. One of our communities has no fluent speakers left. Location, a lot of our Secwepemc communities are spread out and travel distance can be a challenge, especially with the minimal funding.
