Reading and Writing in Innu
(North West River, May 29-June 2, 2006)
The CURA project funded and facilitated another course/workshop in Innu-aimun common orthography for Innu teachers and staff from Peenamin McKenzie School, Sheshatshiu, Labrador. This was the second 30-hour (5-day) workshop in a series of five proposed workshops for Innu teachers from the school.
Thirteen Sheshatshiu Innu teachers and staff attended the course held at the College of the North Atlantic, North West River campus. The course was given by Instructor Doris Vollant and assisted by CURA project manager Laurel Anne Hasler.
Topics covered in the course included plurals, animacy, numbers, months, personal pronouns, capitalization, as well as other rules of Innu-aimun spelling.
This workshop would not have been possible without the assistance of the following institutions:
- L’institut culturel et éducatif montagnais (ICEM)
- Peenamin McKenzie School
- College of the North Atlantic, North West River campus
- The Labrador School Board
