CURRENT PROGRAMS & SERVICES
Nisga'a Language Classes
We will be offering Sim’algax Learning Classes from December 19-23, 2022, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm in our Gathering Space led by G̱alksi-De’entkw (Peter McKay).
It’s a command-based approach, consisting of daily and interactive vocabulary with a gradual process of storytelling. We will begin with unit one of the First Nations Essentials guide that is used in school-based language courses throughout BC. No paper or pens are required, we will learn the language by using the language. Most importantly, we will have fun.
