The Woodland Cultural Centre Langauge Department and Resource Centre is dedicated to strengthening, revitalizing and maintaining First Nations Languages, locally, regionally, and nationally.
The Language Department has actively worked for over 35 years with language speakers, learners, Knowledge Keepers, and teachers to produce community resources in our languages. We aim to support grassroots language programs in our communities, and across the Confederacy.
Please note that due to renovations the Language Resource Centre is currently closed for Public Access.

Logo Contest for the New Dwadwenaga:dat Language Centre at WCC!
Exciting things are happening here at the Dwadwenaga:dat Language Centre. (pronounced Dwad-wen-ah-ga-dot) which roughly translates to “Let’s Interpret” or more specifically “let us all interpret/orally translate between two languages”.
We are offering a $250 Prize to the logo selected by our jury.
When creating your design think about this:
- What does language mean to you?
- How does language help people?
- Why is it important to preserve indigenous languages?
- What symbols, colours or pictures represent that?
This logo will be shared on an International level as we continue to develop educational programs for Indigenous Language preservation.
We will take all graphic entries in .jpg .png or .pdf format for our jurors to evaluate. Please submit all logo entries to firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline: October 1st, 2021 at 4PM
