Indigenous language courses receiving warm welcome at Queen’s University

It is not difficult to find discouraging news regarding the state of indigenous and endangered languages, so I was happy to find this bit of good news in an article from Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario.

The University – located on Kanienkehaka territory and in close proximity to Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory – has begun offering courses in Mohawk and Inuktitut.  The courses have received so much interest from students that both have already reached full enrollment capacity, with additional students waiting to get into the next available classes.
