The purpose of Manitoba Aboriginal Languages Strategy, MALS, is to promote, revitalize, and retain the Aboriginal Languages in Manitoba based on ancestral knowledges of our Grandparents. Understanding the connectedness of generations and the importance of Aboriginal languages teach us who we are as a people. Language ensures a strong connection from the past to the present in a positive way. Our land is where our language is learned and we as Aboriginal people need to learn beyond the walls of a classroom.
The 2nd Annual Indigenous Languages Symposium will honour Grandparents knowledge and Experiences, language program models, strategies, and resources representative to the seven language groups in Manitoba. Come share the importance of language retention, revitalization, and promotion.
Keynote speakers and individual workshop sessions may include, but are not limited to:
