Immerse yourself in Dene culture

This course is a unique opportunity to learn more about Yellowknife’s Indigenous culture. You’ll learn to construct and pronounce simple sentences through practical exercises and storytelling.

This course is offered in English and Ttłı̨chǫ Yati. Duration: 10 weeks for a total of 20 hours. We offer Beginner 1 and Beginner 2.

From September to March, Ttłı̨chǫ learners will have the opportunity to participate in a mentoring program with elders of the Dene community. Activities will be scheduled during this period to allow learners to practice the language and learn more about the Dene culture and traditions. 
This program is partly financed by Employment and Social Development Canada.
