Indigenous languages need to reclaim space in our everyday lives once again. But when you are a beginner, finding a starting point to do that can feel daunting and overwhelming. So, here are five simple ways that have worked for me to help bring Tłı̨chǫ Yatıì back into my everyday life:
Itoah Scott-Enns is Tłı̨chǫ and lives in Yellowknife, NT with her husband and daughter. Itoah founded the #SpeakTłı̨chǫToMe social media campaign in 2015 to promote learning and using Tłı̨chǫ Yatıì. She is currently enrolled in the Tłı̨chǫ Mentor-Apprentice Program, and is grateful to her mother, Gabrielle Mackenzie, who is teaching her the language. Itoah is the owner of Įdaà Strategies and is supporting communities in the North to build trails into the future that are rooted in our Northern and Indigenous languages, cultures, and ways of life.
