Updated with Winter 2019 dates!
FPCC Language Revitalization Coaches will be travelling throughout the province to share information and support for language revitalization work. Language Revitalization Coaches support First Nations communities and organizations to build up their language revitalization initiatives through strategic language planning and by increasing access to First Peoples’ Cultural Council’s tools, resources and funding. The coaches also offer resources, ongoing project support and guidance to all of our grant recipients.
The FPCC Language Coaches are ḥiikuusiinapšił Victoria Wells, who is Ehattesaht of the Nuuchahnuulth, and TE,LI,MET,ȾTEN Glenn Jim, who is W̱SÁNEĆ from W̱SÍKEM First Nation in North Saanich. For more information on the Coaches click here.
Victoria and Glenn will be holding regional workshops titled: “Planning for Language Revitalization.” These workshops would be most beneficial to language planners, leaders (traditional and elected), teachers, language champions, advisors, Elders, visionaries, youth and cultural leaders.
Our 2019 workshop schedule so far is:
Lillooet – February 7, 2019
