Our Nlaka’pamuxcin Language

The Nlaka’pamuxcin language is still spoken by a few of our Elders.

Our recent integration of the language into the Nc’tetkwu Band School curriculum is leading to a resurgence of interest and knowledge among our young people.

Currently we have 12 members that speak and understand our language fluently, and 154 that somewhat understand and/or speak our language. All those who speak and understand the language fluently are aged 55 and over, but fortunately 210 members are learning the language.
