Conversation, reading and writing in Tłı̨chǫ

Learn about the culture and language of the tłı̨chǫ community living in the Northwest Territories (NWT)

If you are interested in Indigenous cultures, “Introduction to the Tłı̨chǫ culture and language for francophones” is for you,
whether you are Indigenous or not.

This course reflects and expresses the culture and language of the tłı̨chǫ people living in the Northwest Territories (NWT) and consists of:

  • 20 hours of language learning
  • 16 hours of cultural familiarization, texts, and interactive activities
  • 2 special guests: 1 during Truth and Reconcilation Week and 1 at the end of the course.
  • 1 tłı̨chǫ workbook

Throughout the courses, you will learn how to greet, introduce yourself, and talk about clothing and food in one of the nine official Indigenous languages of the NWT.

Offered in French and in Tłı̨chǫ Yatıı̀, the 36-hour course will be offered over the span of 12 weeks, from September 12 to December 5, 2022. The course will take place in person for those who live in Yellowknife, as well as virtually via Zoom.

This course is offered in partnership with the Université de l’Ontario français (UOF). At the end of your training, you will have the possibility of obtaining credits from the UOF upon request.
