With each passing generation, we are leaving behind our language and are in the process of becoming an English speaking people. Through the Kwayaciiwin program, we can provide the opportunity for our children to continue to use and learn our language and culture. Our language enables us to express our worldwide view, beliefs, philosophy, values, traditions and customs. Our language is our vehicle for learning and passing on our culture to our children.
Matthew Angees – Former Executive Director
