Indigenous Languages Month

​February is Indigenous Languages Month in the Northwest Territories!

The theme of 2021 is "Cook With Me" and is being 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 North Heritage Centre website for more information on the official languages. 

During the month of February, we encourage everyone to celebrate Indigenous languages, learn about traditional foods, and try cooking in the language of your community.
