FLUENT SPEAKER MENTOR PROGRAM
We can count our fluent speakers on one hand. Because of this, we are constantly working towards finding ways to stay connected to our precious elders and learn from them. We keep this goal in mind: 2nd language learners will speak our ancient tongue & will nurture new generations of 1st language Haida speakers.
ALWAYS IMMERSED IN OUR CULTURE
At Haida Roots, we keep our ancestral ways alive through strong community ties, creating language learning opportunities, curriculum & literary development, song & dance practice, storytelling, art & traditional regalia making & more.
Master Haida artists pass their knowledge to the next generations.
