Nak'al Bun School Programs



First Voices is an online space for Indigenous communities to share and promote language, oral culture and linguistic history. Language teams work with elders to curate and upload audio recordings, dictionaries, songs and stories. This content is shared with community members or the broader public.

We do our best to share as much traditional knowledge and on land experience as possible. We are very proud of the students being able to participate every day by using the dakelh language and culture.
