Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
We can use our Reader Friendly Level 1 and 2 Language Packages to learn the first and second levels of language.
Challenges: 
We have fewer and fewer elders left. Funding is a challenge as we need a full-time language manager to create, carry out our dreams and wishes, to market the language and to bring us to the next level so our language isn't lost.
