Nothing is More Integral to Culture Than Language.
When a language is no longer spoken, a large part of its culture is lost. The nuances contained within a language effect everything from storytelling and interpersonal interactions, to the way that the world is seen by the people that speak it. Language relays the importance that is placed upon particular objects, places, and things.
Here at Ndakinna, Jesse Bruchac and members of the Abenaki Language community lead our classes. Class levels range from beginner to intermediate, and are held monthly. To see what our latest classes are, check our calendar of events by clicking here.
