Manitoba Aboriginal Languages Strategy
The purpose of Manitoba Aboriginal Languages Strategy, MALS, is to promote, revitalize, and retain the Aboriginal Languages in Manitoba based on ancestral knowledges of our Grandparents. Understanding the connectedness of generations and the importance of Aboriginal languages teach us who we are as a people. Language ensures a strong connection from the past to the present in a positive way. Our land is where our language is learned and we as Aboriginal people need to learn beyond the walls of a classroom.
