Many Voices, One Mind
Baby's Day Out / Swayels te Sqaqele Li Kwe Satl'q
"Qwemches te sqaqele" ... and so begins the wonderful journey of this children's board book by Many Voices, One Mind. Swayels te Sqaqele Li Kwe Satl'q is an example of how much fun learning a language and a culture can be.
Our Network believes that using two word sentences to encourage language can be fun for families and children alike. All families will treasure this fantastic approach to discovering the Halq'emeylem language, Nlaka'Pamux language and Sto:lo culture.
