Comments from the Introduction Classes:

I really loved the connection the class created and the opportunity the class gave to hear stories, sing songs and learn the language.  I really appreciate that I can now introduce myself in my mother’s language.

I had a great time listening to everyone’s stories and all learning together.

We are grateful for the ongoing support from the First People’s Cultural Council
