MUN Linguistics team helps create Innu language children's books

Marguerite MacKenzie and Laurel Anne Hasler of the Linguistics CURA project facilitated a second workshop for writing children's books in the language of the Innu of Labrador. The workshop was led by Donna-Lee Smith, specialist in writing and Director of the First Nations and Inuit Education Programs at McGill University. Classroom assistants and staff of Peenamin Mackenzie school in Sheshatshiu and the Mushuau Innu Natuashish school attended. Four books from the fall workshop had been printed for use in classrooms and a further six were completed this time.
