Canada : Aboriginal Languages Initiative: the Government of Canada Supports Kina8ats Activities.

The Government of Canada has prioritized the preservation, promotion and revitalization of Indigenous languages, which are essential to advancing reconciliation.

Today the Honourable Mlanie Joly, Minister of Canadian Heritage, announced that the Government of Canada is providing $350,438 ($163,076 in 201819 and $187,362 in 201920) to the non-profit organization Kina8at to allow it to continue offering language camps. This support is provided through Canadian Heritages Aboriginal Languages Initiative.

Kina8at offers a range of training, consciousness-raising and healing programs inspired by First Nations philosophy and traditions. Its mission is to facilitate healing and cultural reconnection among First Nations, and to support reconciliation and the sharing of Indigenous cultures with all.

The funding announced today will allow Kina8at to continue producing language training resources in Algonquin and Atikamekw, as well as offer its Asipan language camps. In addition to promoting the transmission of language and culture, these multi-year activities promote reconciliation and cultural reappropriation.
