Indian Head First Nation (IHFN) and the Mi’kmaw Heritage Research & Restoration Association (MHRRA) are hosting a free Mi’kmaw Language Camp, to be held at the People of the Dawn Indigenous Friendship Centre in St. George’s from August 1st to 5th. With instruction provided by Dr. Bernie Francis, Curtis Michael, April Maloney and Simon Francis, this is a great opportunity to learn the basics of Mi’kmaw. Local language apprentices Marcella Williams and Shane Snook will also be assisting.
Classes are now open to the public, whether they are status or non-status, but space is limited. Please contact Chief Charlie White (709-643-4423) to sign up, which will be done on a first come, first served basis. Details may be found on the attached poster, which you can also download and print to share. Some snacks and meals will be provided, with graduation to occur at the end of the day on Monday, August 5th.
