Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
Penticton Indian Band Education, Outma Sqilx'w Cultural School Sensisyustin, and Senpokchin School are launching an electronic curriculum project to revitalize language via technology so that our language is recorded and posted online for all community members to access and utilize. The language lessons will follow a scope and sequence to support language learning for First Nation Band Schools in our nation and for access by parents and families in their homes. In addition, we will develop DVD for community use. The resources created will be accessible for all Band Schools in the Okanagan Region.
Challenges: 
Lack of funding to support the ongoing curriculum development. Lack of internet/wireless access in our community homes. Time availability for resource people to come together to support the project.
