Join us for a series of four gatherings to learn introductory Hul’q’umi’num with Snuneymuxw language champion Adam Manson. Receive a language booklet and basic instruction including respectful everyday uses of Hul’q’umi’num. Sessions will be recorded as a resource for further practice and include a fun hands-on activity to create our own flashcards, posters, and materials that can be used to support language learning in any setting. By embracing Hul’q’umi’num in our community, we learn more about this place and contribute to revitalizing a language threatened with extinction.

Inspired by a lively tour of Earthlings, create your own mixed media artwork—we will paint, use pastel, draw, experiment and collage on panels. Artist and educator Yvonne Vander Kooi will share techniques and fresh approaches that will surprise and delight. Create an artwork to take home, have fun and catch up with friends—you don't have to be an artist to be creative.
