My heart. 🥰 So grateful Zaylen was able to attend Lushootseed Language Camp again!

He spent the week learning about Coast Salish culture by "weaving cedar mats, smudging, beading necklaces and harvesting local plants, like devil’s club, for medicine and ceremonial art. Throughout the five-day camp, the young Lushootseed Language Warriors absorbed the traditional language, stories and songs of their people through a combination of interactive teachings, including outdoor play and a series of visual lessons taught on tablet computers". #ZaylenCarter #summercamp #summerfun #languagecamp #learning #lushootseed #languagewarrior #coastsalish

We’re so grateful for and impressed with all the hard work folks are putting in at LSI-N! Learning a language isn’t always easy, but it’s worth it. #lakota #languagewarrior #languagewarriors

Are you into the Mi’kmaq language? Want to learn it? Help keep it alive?🙌🏾 Wela’lin: thank you!! #SpeakMikmaq .
Me and this guy @talon_simon are up something.. totally stepping out of our comfort zones for the sake of our language. So grateful we were invited to speak in a room with Madam @michaelle.jean, big businesses that are potential funding supports & other incredible entrepreneurs. We shared the works we both do as #IndigenousBusiness owners it was nice to hear the mission behind #RezFamous & how the 1 yr bday is soon coming up for my brother’s clothing line!.
We ended our speech with the emphasis on helping to keep our Mi’kmaq language alive. It’s the first language of East Coast Canada. There are many incredible language teachers, enthusiasts helping to share & teach Mi’kmaq language but there isn’t enough funding focused on Mi’kmaq language. Language keepers deserve to be compensated to teach the language, so they can also pay their bills & feed their families. We are hoping, manifesting that there will be more funding support put in place in our areas to pay language keepers, to have language retreats, to have more language conferences/events/weekly classes, more signs up with our language in public places etc. There’s no guarantee what will come out of our request, but there were some pretty important people in the room, even the mayor of Halifax. 
In the meantime, we just want to thank each & everyone of you who’s helping to keep our precious language alive. To all the non-natives learning our language: you all freakin rock, too!! It lights my heart up to hear anyone speaking Mi’kmaq🤩 if you’re an avid fan of the #SpeakMikmaq movement: be sure to follow @languagekeeper — they now carry the the #SpeakMikmaq clothing line. Major kudos to @talon_simon, Heidi Simon, Leah Sock for doing the background editing/images/sound. They’re doing incredible giving us daily words!🙌🏾💕You can hear how they sound, phonetics, spelling, images. If you want to be featured there, msg them— they’re open minded to highlighting more Mi’kmaq speakers! 
Major wela’lin to Ryan Veltmeyer with @youthartconnection for including @rezfamousbrand and I to this event! #iyil2019

I had a dream last week. It’s been on my mind in the best of ways.
.
I was speaking Unangam Tunuu in Akutan with everyone. All the young kids spoke. All the non-Natives were even learning. We could only talk to each other if we spoke in Unangam Tunuu. There was a lot of signing. A lot of Pictionary trying to get words right. A lot of mess ups. I remember we kept messing up a phrase trying to ask about what angalix̂ it was. And I pulled out my phone and was like oh it’s Tuesday so, uvtuurnikax̂ angalikux̂? But then the people I was talking to looked at each other and laughed because they didn’t mean to ask that. They put angalix̂ in there on accident. And we all laughed. Laughed so much our brains were tired from constantly thinking in Unangam Tunuu. But this is what it takes. Right before I woke up I wanted to join a conversation. The girls were all talking about their red lipstick. Obviously we had to make up the word for lipstick or maybe they already did and I was completely lost. This is how it works everywhere. People constantly are making new words for what they need in their vocabulary. So I also wanted to say that I have red lipstick too. And I was trying so hard to remember the word red. I knew the word for red! I was getting frustrated with myself for not remembering it or being able to speak. When I woke up I was still frustrated. Uluudax̂. It came to me. Because it comes from the word for red meat. Ulux̂. This is how I remember.
.
Inspired to see the day I go to an Aleutian village and we have conversations in Unangam Tunuu. ✨

I’ve got a pretty awesome story to share with you! Recently I was asked to speak on stage alongside Buffy St-Marie and other incredible Indigenous females at a Women’s summit in NB🤩 if you don’t know who Buffy is, she’s a big deal to many of us. She’s like our Cher! Haha. She’s 78 & still rocking out hard, an activist, musician, singer, a SHERO to many!! Well, I had the honour to hang with her at a dinner along with a few others.
.

Once the topic “language” came up, I leaned in, got brave & asked her a couple of questions. I asked her what her native language was, when did she learn, did she experience any lateral violence (bullying) while learning— and guess what, she hasn’t! She started learning as a young woman, even before she was famous. She was encouraged, they’d giggle with mess ups, but was never shunned, teased, or discouraged by other native people (the way it should be). She was shocked to hear of the language bullying & language ego that is happening here on the East Coast of Canada. It was incredible to hear this from her... in her 78 years of living and all of her years of activism... she’s never heard of native communities bullying each other when speaking our native tongue.  Around the table, we shared some stories, examples, solutions. She reminded us to respond to the lateral violence with kindness (even tho it is very difficult) & encouraged us to stick together with like-minded souls, to keep encouraging each other to keep our language alive. She even spoke of our dinner convo the next day AT HER CONCERT!🤩 .
One of the solutions she advised was, let’s continue to shout-out, praise all of those who are language keepers, teaching, sharing the language. So let’s do that! Let’s continue to lift up & appreciate those who are keeping a native language alive. **Feel free to tag them below!**.
.
Hope this encourages you to keep learning & speaking our native languages🤗

There’s a new fire in my heart thanks to her❤️ Fun fact: she’s the FIRST woman to breastfeed on national television 🙌🏽 #SpeakMikmaq #LanguageKeeper
