Indigenous Languages Month

February is Indigenous Languages Month in the Northwest Territories!

This year’s theme is "Let’s Go Fishing" and is celebrated in partnership with the NWT Literacy Council.

Indigenous Languages Month celebrates and honours the languages and cultures of the NWT. Learn about our official Indigenous languages and speak them with pride. Visit the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre website for more information on the official languages.
 

During the month of February, we encourage everyone to celebrate Indigenous languages by speaking in the language of your community or region at home, work or school.

Follow NWT Indigenous Languages and Education on Facebook for more ways to celebrate Indigenous Languages Month 2022!
