Little Skwxwú7mesh Books

Kwi Awt Stelmexw designs learning materials for Squamish families and others interested in learning the Squamish language, Skwxwú7mesh Sníchim.

Little Skwxwú7mesh Books is a series of booklets specifically designed for Squamish families. As part of our efforts to bring more Skwxwú7mesh Sníchim into the homes and lives of the Squamish Peoples, we have designed these books to focus on basic language skills, vocabulary, and phrases that are typically used within the home or within family settings when out and about. Audio resources will also accompany each book to assist learners with pronunciation. These books will be distributed for free to participants of the Language in the Homes project.

Once the Little Skwxwú7mesh Books have been tested out with families and adjusted according to their feedback, they will be made available to the public to increase knowledge, appreciation, and support for Skwxwú7mesh Sníchim in the Squamish Nation community and beyond.
