Community not listed comment: 
We are working with the Language Revitalization group formed by Sara Michel of Tk’emlups. The group consists of interested Secwepemc people working on the language. Our last meeting Nov 28, 2014 had 5 Bands represented and 23 attendees.
Opportunities and Challenges
Opportunities: 
We have applied to every funding opportunity we can to keep our language technicians employed and for honoraria for our elders. The community has provided support for a Language Coordinator and for a classroom teacher.
Challenges: 
One of the biggest challenges is the age of our fluent speakers. We just had an elder pass away this week and each loss has huge repercussions.
