Finding Our Talk

Ktunaxa #304

Tuesday, December 1, 01:00 pm on FNX National

Duration: 0:24:01

Description: Can the 'wired teepee' help save the Ktunaxa language in the Kootenays? The Ktunaxa people are going to find out thanks to a number of technology initiatives taking place in their community. From the First Voices project to the seven million dollar fiber optics network, to a young woman recording her great aunt for the virtual language curriculum and kids listening on their iPods in the school yard, the community is doing everything it can to preserve and share a language that only has twenty-four remaining speakers.
