Selkirk offers Salish language course this fall


Selkirk College will offer a new Beginners n̓syilxčn̓ 1 (pronounced in-seel-h-chin) language course this fall. The course encourages students to develop their speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills in Salish and will be delivered in partnership with the Salish School of Spokane. “This is such an important step for the college to support self-determination and language revitalization,” said Selkirk Director of Indigenous Education & Engagement Dianne Biin. The course is open to all learners with an interest in Salish language and culture; Indigenous students can enrol in the course at no cost.
