5 things to learn about Indigenous Languages
New exhibit on display from June 18 to 22 at Newnham
In support of National Aboriginal Solidarity Day, First Peoples@Seneca and Seneca Libraries collaborated on an Indigenous Languages Exhibit, which is on display in the Minkler Atrium at Newnham Campus until tomorrow.
Here are five things to learn at the exhibit:
1. More people speak Cree than any other Aboriginal language.
2. Inuit language is spoken from the Bering Strait to Greenland.
3. Inuit language in Canada can be divided into two main dialects.
4. Cree is polysynthetic — a Cree single word can express complex ideas.
5. Oral storytelling is tradition.
