Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
Elders are willing to work at archiving the language and the stories. Many of our young people access the language through FirstVoices.
Challenges: 
The weight of the language rests on our one and only school teacher. It is very difficult to have a complimentary community language program. Because our teacher is in the public school system she is obliged to teach everyone, but we only have the one teacher.
