Thanks to Solomon Ratt for permission to post this collection of photos from this summer’s “Nêhiyawak Summer Language Acquisitioning Experience” hosted by Belinda Daniels at Don Allen Trails, 18km north of La Ronge, between July 24th and 28th. The instructor in the photos is Bill Cook. It looks like a whole lot of us missed a whole lot of fun!
This year marked the 12th such camp, in which speakers and learners come together to collectively, as a team, restore, revitalize and reclaim spoken nêhiyaw language.

I AM SITTING AT MY COMPUTER HEARING THESE STORIES AND LISTENING TO THE LANGUAGE AND TEARS OF JOY AND RECOGNITION ARE FLOWING FROM MY EYES – THIS IS SO BEAUTIFUL – SO POWERFUL
