9.25.1 GENERAL INFORMATION

No culture can survive without the retention of its language. One goal of First Nations University of Canada Department of Indian Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics is thus to strengthen First Nations identity by ensuring the survival of the languages of Saskatchewan’s First Nations. The department aims to instill in its students a sense of pride in the knowledge and use of the Indian languages.

The Department of Indian Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics offers courses in Cree, Saulteaux, Nakota, Dakota, and Dene languages, and in general linguistics. For the First Nation languages of Saskatchewan, introductory courses teach conversational fluency and an awareness of how each language works. More advanced courses explore the structures, writing systems, and literatures of Saskatchewan’s Indian languages, as well as principles of translation, expository and creative writing, oral tradition, and directed studies. Introductory courses include language lab activities as well. While most of the language and linguistics courses are offered in Regina, the Saskatoon and Northern campuses of First Nations University of Canada also offer full-credit Cree and Saulteaux courses each semester. Dene (Chipewyan) is offered through NORTEP in extension courses in the north.
