The Native languages have been oppressed, denied or simply ignored for far too long.
Although the Natives are trying their best to revive their ancient languages, which is also defining their way of life, their culture, their heritage, and their spirituality, many youth find that learning their own language is a waste of time due to its "uselessness" outside of their community.

Since the "white" world is all about certificates, grades and diplomas, offering classes - not only in New Brunswick - would increase both the demand for as well as the interest in what is undeniably part of their heritage.

I hope that Mr. Graham will succeed.

Thank you, Romina, for this article.
