Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
Opportunity is that we have a core group of speakers and elders that are very keen to revitalize the Beaver language. We also have a willing partner at the Treaty 8 Tribal Association to assist us.
Challenges: 
Lack of continuous and consistent funding to implement meaningful initiatives. Lack of human resources/funding to keep the language initiatives going when they have momentum. Lack of technology to entice and encourage youth to learn and use the language consistently.
