Language connects us. More than mere words, it is the thread that binds our communities and our cultures to traditional ways of knowing, to our ancestors, and to our identity.
Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN) Picipipoon Language Symposium 2021 is a unique cultural and educational forum. (Picipipoon means “Winter is Coming”). The theme is Speak to Me in My Language and was planned to connect educators, policy makers, and youth to promote learning and teaching Anishiniimowin / Mashkiikomowin (Mushkegomowin) / Anishinaabemowin (Language) in communities across the north
