Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
Continuing to provide a Language Nest within our daycare ʔiiḥmisuk t ̓aatn ̓aʔis, young children will be immersed in a culturally rich. play-based learning environment. They will have increased fluency in the nuučaan̓uł language and have strong connections to Elders who are passing on their knowledge in both language and cultural teachings.
Challenges: 
Challenges we have encountered in implementing the Language Nest are gaps of programming due to funding restraints. We are very optimistic and dedicated to continue the Language Nest with increased funds that will allow for increased time that the children spend speaking nuučaan̓uł.
