Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
We will have the opportunity to hire fluent Nisga'a speaking community members. This will assist in incorporating a language nest program that will encourage the revitalization of our Nisga'a language. With fluent speaking staff we will have children, families and staff learning and speaking the Nisga'a language at the early stages of development preparing them for the school system, traditional events that follow the Nisga'a Ayuuk (law), and life as a Nisga'a individual.
Challenges: 
The challenges to implementing language and cultural projects is that there is no funding to employ people that can carry out these projects
