This webpage will assist the Secwepemc communities across the territory stay in touch with the Secwepemctsin language. It will feature a variety of resources for viewers to learn about the language, as well as to learn the language itself. “It’s a link from our past into the future, especially for our future generations to come… We can only rely on ourselves to learn our language and we are responsible for providing opportunities because we can’t go anywhere else to learn,” said Louella Jules, SIB Language Coordinator.
Included on this webpage will be downloadable files, interactive games/apps, photos, and videos; that will allow viewers to learn about the Secwepemctsin language and culture/history. This webpage is meant for viewers of all walks of life, from youth to Elders.
By providing this webpage, the Skeetchestn Indian Band (SIB) hopes to create opportunities to preserve and promote the Secwepemctsin language, culture, and history. A Secwepemc Elder once said, “Language is the blanket of our soul… it identifies our people and our cultural identity.”
