Family Law – Sheshatshiu Dialect
(Goose Bay, July 2-4, 2008)
In partnership with the Department of Justice, the CURA project facilitated a workshop to collect and develop family law terminology for the Sheshatshiu dialect of Innu-aimun.
Over 200 family law terms (including those used in cases involving child protection, family court procedures, custody and access, and support) were reviewed and translated for the Sheshatshiu dialect of Innu-aimun.
