MHS Success Stories!

Aboriginal Culture and Language

In our classes, Tlicho Yati is taught and students learn to speak basic words and conversational phrases. They also develop skills that are connected to Aboriginal culture, like beading, drumming, setting snares, etc. Although Aboriginal culture and language are rooted in tradition, our students learn how to use Aboriginal language in today’s world as well. New technology is used at MHS to teach language, like the SMART board and Aboriginal Language applications on the iPads. Our ALC and Dene Laws programs provide all students with a 'sense of place'. They understand that they are living in the north -- a special place that is distinct and unique.
