Beginner’s Guide to Abenaki Language Course (Online):The Four Senses

March 1 @ 6:00 pm - March 28 @ 8:00 pm

Ndakinna Education Center Abenaki Language Remote Learning Classes:

Beginner’s Guide to Abenaki: The Four Senses

During our Beginner’s Guide to Abenaki, students will learn to confidently construct their own basic sentences based on carefully selected models. Each class will begin with a single key word that students will then learn more of the language off of.  Special focus will be given on the imperative form, as well as the incorporation of adjectives and adverbs.  Classes will include games, songs, group activities, and lesson specific worksheets.

As in each of our monthly courses, Guide to Abenaki: Four Senses offers two levels. The first is specifically designed to welcome those with no experience to the language, while the second builds on the first for those wanting more. Both levels are open to all who register. As the title suggests, this moon’s course draws entirely on our senses as we explore the Abenaki world view with four model phrases focusing on a different sense each week. In honor of Alamikos (The Greetings Maker Moon), we will be showing gratitude to our relations with each lesson. The course also includes a passage from the Abenaki Creation Story which relates the shaping of Wjihozo’s ears, eyes, nose and mouth by Kchi Niwaskw.

This is a 4 week course taking place March 1st to the 28th at 6-8pm on Monday, 10 am to 12 pm Tuesday, and an open community game night and review period from 6-8pm on Sunday evenings. The class will include a Certificate of Completion for students, and is recommended for anyone wishing to continue on to our Intermediate Course.

Minimum 10 person class, maximum 25.
