Language Revitalization Coaching


FPCC offers in person Language Revitalization Coaching throughout the province.

The FPCC Language Coaches are ḥiikuusiinapšił Victoria Wells, who is Ehattesaht of the Nuuchahnuulth, and TE,LI,MET,ȾTEN Glenn Jim, who is W̱SÁNEĆ from W̱SÍKEM First Nation in North Saanich. For more information on Vicki and Glen click here.

Language Revitalization Coaches support First Nation communities and organizations to build up their language revitalization initiatives through strategic language planning and by increasing access to First Peoples’ Cultural Council’s tools, resources and funding. The coaches offer resources, ongoing project support and guidance to all of our grant recipients.

These workshops would be most beneficial to language planners, leaders (traditional and elected), teachers, language champions, advisors, Elders, visionaries, youth and cultural leaders.
