By listening to family and community members share teachings and speak Cree, Charlotte immersed herself in her culture and language. Through her Indigenous Language Revitalization program, she has been able to learn about the experiences, worldviews, and cultures of other Indigenous groups throughout Turtle Island.
As a mature student, Charlotte would not have been able to complete her studies without the added financial support from the NIB Trust Fund. These funds have helped Charlotte become a proud student and focus on her program rather than finances.
“When we become more aware of the many facets of learning our Indigenous languages are an endless source of comfort, healing and inspiration. hiy hiy kinanāskomitināwāw”
