The 2019 Language Conference a Success!
Chief Atahm School would like to thank everyone who helped and attended the Indigenous Languages Conference in May 16th and 17th, 2019 at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, BC.
People from all Nations came together to share and learn about how to teach, promote and revitalize our languages. This year's theme is "Stetúme: Dreaming the Future" and will focus on planning and assessment in our language programs.
The mountains and the rivers, the land, became alive to the people and involved in all this was return of our old stories – the legends, the myths that we had, the stsptekwle, the slexlexey'e about our people. And, as the children listen to it more and hear it, they find that these stories, and myths and legends of our people and the lessons of the old people are dynamic." (the late Joe S. Michel)
