First cohort of Hul’q’umi’num’ speakers graduate with Indigenous Languages diploma.

  1. #1
    SFU’s Indigenous Languages Program celebrated its first Hul’q’umi’num’ graduates from the Diploma Program in Proficiency in a First Nations Language. Six students—Christopher Alphonse, Roseanna George, Martina Joe, Thomas Johnny, Donna May Modeste, and Sharon Seymour—completed the diploma in December 2019 and were eligible to convocate this June.

    They are continuing in the Bachelor of Arts program with an extended minor in linguistics and the new minor in Indigenous Languages, which was approved by SFU Senate last month. The diploma program and the new minor build on the certificate program. Since 1993, SFU has partnered with communities to offer courses in 18 languages in British Columbia and Yukon.

    Twenty-five students of two other languages, Secwepemctsin and Skwxwu7mesh Snichim, completed their diplomas this spring.

    Hul’q’umi’num’ is a Coast Salish language spoken in southeastern Vancouver Island, along the shores of the Salish Sea. Hul’q’umi’num’, like many Indigenous languages, has very few remaining fluent speakers. The SFU students play a vital role in their communities as language teachers and material developers.
