Chief Atahm School is excited to announce the Indigenous Languages Conference in May 16th and 17th, 2019 to be held at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, BC.
We welcome people from all Nations to come 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)
