September 15th ,2019 - January 6th,2020
Mary Gouchie: Hubodulh’eh and Our Living Languages

How many of us in BC can say “hello” in the language of the people on whose traditional territory we live, work and play? Hadih is the traditional way to say hello in the Lheidli T’enneh dialect of Dakelh.
You might find yourself expanding your vocabulary—and appreciation for the state of Indigenous languages spoken in BC—after visiting The Exploration Place to view the Our Living Languages: First Peoples’ Voices in BC travelling exhibition and in-house exhibit Mary Gouchie: Hubodulh’eh.

Learn what First Nations communities throughout the province are doing to help 34 different languages survive and flourish, in Our Living Languages, a beautifully designed exhibition from the Royal BC Museum and First Peoples’ Cultural Council that celebrates the resilience and diversity of Indigenous languages in the face of change.
