Connie

This is Connie  Poodlat walking down the ramp beside the library.  She teaches Inuktitut to the students after they get into classes where English is the language of instruction.   Her job is to make the students competent in their native language, to make sure they do not lose the language skills learned as children at home, and to incorporate cultural knowledge and skills. The curriculum which is used for her course is called Innuqatigiit.
