This is the last week of Captikʷł 1. Stories 15. snkstíyaʔ naʔł ʔarsíkʷ (Skunk and Turtle), and 16. snkstíyaʔ naʔł yx̌ʷyx̌ʷutxn (Skunk and Badger). Along with Captikʷł 1, students have been learning songs from Song book 2. Many of the students have children and are fortunate enough to teach and share the stories and songs.
Andrew McGinnis shared that, If you are having difficulty saying a word or words together, make a song and sing it. By singing it, it makes the transition of sounds flow together into sentences.
We appreciate all of the fluent speakers who continue to revitalize, renew and preserve the language. We also appreciate our students for all of their hardwork and dedication they share with us each week. way̓ límləmt!
