Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
We are very fortunate to have elder language speakers in our community and two certified language teachers. We have a large land base and several small Indian Reserves in our Traditional Territory. We are a remote community and our people do occupy thier traditional homesteads and utilize all their cultural practices.
Challenges: 
In the past, there was a Residential School right in our community. Because of its size and proximity in our community, it impacted several generations of language speakers. Our youth has lost their language. Very few youth understand some of the language and are unable to speak the language.
