ILF-101 Kwak'wala Immersion 1

3 credits


Intensive Kwak'wala language instruction will draw on local Indigenous knowledge and ways of knowing and being in an Indigenous language immersion setting at an introductory level. The units will draw on a wide variety of culturally relevant activities conducted through the lens of language to explore the essential relationship between Kwak'wala and identity, place (including land and sea), wellness, and roles and responsibilities. Students will build oral and aural skills through experiential activities that are the foundation for place-based, culturally infused learning. This course will provide students with an introduction to learner strategies and comprehensible language acquisition methods that are advantageous for Indigenous language acquisition and prepare students for a more intensive, immersive, place-based second term.
