This article outlines how the Government of Manitoba and various Native groups will work together to introduce various language programs aimed at keeping Canada’s indigenous languages alive. ┬áMany of these first languages are under threat of going extinct and these groups hope to reverse this trend through instruction and promotion. ┬áThis program is seen to be a long term project because of the time factor involved in training teachers and creating curriculum but in the future it is hoped that students in Manitoba will be able to learn Manitoba Cree, Dene, Ojibwe, Dakota and Oji-Cree languages.
