In Indigenous early childhood settings, we recognize the value of immersing children in culture and language. Heritage Languages shape our connection to land, culture, food, teaching, and learning and can cultivate and nurture cultural identity, a sense of belonging, well-being and spiritual fulfillment. Early childhood educators support children and families to explore, strengthen, recover, and reclaim ancestral values and knowledges encoded in language. Workshops this year will inspire educators to explore ways Indigenous Languages support culturally relevant, spiritually enriching Indigenous early learning and child care programs and weave Indigenous Knowledges into everyday practice.
