Language Nests

Language Nests are an immersion-based, intergenerational approach to Indigenous language revitalisation. The model was first adopted by the Māori of New Zealand in the 1980s, and has since become popular among Indigenous groups internationally.

Kingston has its own Indigenous Languages Nest, which includes speakers of Mohawk, Anishinaabemowin (Ojibwe), and Cree. For more information, please contact Maureen at 613-217-4441.
