Language Toolkit

This Toolkit is a collection of resources for language learners, First Nations' communities wanting to develop language revitalization projects, and people looking for information on the First Nations' languages of British Columbia.

It is intended as a starting point, not a comprehensive list of every resource available on B.C. First Nations' languages. If you know of a language resource that could be added, please contact us.

The Language Toolkit is best viewed with Safari 1.1 or higher on a Mac, or Internet Explorer 6.0 or higher on a PC. To view First Nations' alphabets correctly, you may need to install an appropriate Aboriginal Font.

Aboriginal Fonts:
To view First Nations alphabets correctly you need to have one of the following Unicode fonts installed: Lucida Grande, Lucida Sans Unicode, Gentium, Code2001, Aboriginal Sans, or Aboriginal Serif.

To download the Aboriginal Sans font:
  • Click the above link to download the font. A zip file will be downloaded to your computer.
  • Open the zip file and place the font files in the appropriate place on your computer:
    • On a Mac, place the font files in Library/Fonts.
    • On a PC, place the font files in Settings/Control Panel/Fonts.
  • You may need to restart your computer to make the new fonts available.
