March is Aboriginal Languages Month. It’s a time to celebrate the NWT’s Aboriginal languages and encourage people to learn about and use them.
In the NWT we are very fortunate – we live in a land rich in languages and cultures. We have 11 official languages – nine of those are Aboriginal, the other two are French and English. For Aboriginal languages to survive and thrive, it’s important to promote their use every day – at home, in the community and at work.
Take part in the Aboriginal Languages Month activities in your community.
In 2017 we are hosting a Indigenous Languages Month Video Challenge.
