Indigenous Language Initative


 College/University StudentsEducationLanguage Instruction

The Centre for Indigenous Studies' Indigenous Language Initiative (Ciimaan/Kahuwe’yá/Qajaq) supports the University of Toronto community in the study and everyday use of Indigenous languages. It provides space, programming and support to language learners and speakers within the Indigenous Studies Program at the University of Toronto and the broader community. We assist in the creation, facilitation, and delivery of Indigenous language and cultural programming for Indigenous and non-Indigenous students, language speakers, and learners at all levels via language workshops, conferences, and social and cultural activities. The Indigenous Language Initiative presents students and community members with numerous opportunities to gain insight about the importance of language and culture, as well as sustainable and vibrant ways of both learning and teaching Indigenous languages.
