Indigenous Languages

One of the core messages heard during NCCIE’s first year is how important languages are to First Nations, Métis and Inuit Peoples and the central role languages play when passing on knowledge and culture through Indigenous education. To reflect this close relationship between Indigenous languages and Indigenous education, and in support of the United Nations Declaration that 2019 is the ‘Year of Indigenous Languages’, NCCIE has initiated a number of language projects.
