Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
Each summer we have an opportunity to work with young people while the elders are present. Most times, we have an immersion session using Nedut'een dialect. The greatest opportunity is to utilize our elders and young elders. This is an isolated community and the young people are more inclined to take part in daily activities
Challenges: 
The challenge that we face is that our language is dying off slowly. We have very few fluent speakers.
