Traditional Stories

DVDs and CDs of traditional stories told in language with subtitles in both languages to facilitate language learning as well as more common use of the language in the meantime increasing exposure to Hul'q'umi'num'.

I think that this is a wonderful way for people to learn and understand the Hul' q'umi' num' language. People need to know these stories, for they are the voice of the First Nations people, they have morals, and they may do good for the younger ones who have lost their way. Love what you guys have done :) Keep it up!

ps: Under "Cedar and weaving DVD"
there are two words together
by accident.

This wonderful video reminds me of the time I gave my Native students a writing prompt, What would happen if animals could talk? The students were hard at work, when the Hul'q'umi'num' teacher stopped by. Without a word, he went to the board, picked up a marker and added the word again. His gentle correction inspires my teaching and keeps me eager to learn more about the Cowichan culture. Susan
