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.
