Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
There are several people interested to teach and to learn the language in the communities at the moment. People eager to pass it on, cultural and traditional leaders in their communities. There are partnerships available and people are motivated. More and more young families are returning to live in our homes again.
Challenges: 
All communities are located along a gravel road and rather remote. Not many people have drivers licenses or access to reliable vehicles. It is necessary to have services, cultural and language opportunities come to them.
