By Aaron Hemens Local Journalism Initiative Reporter The first of 12 educational signs promoting the nsyilxc?n language has been unveiled at a Boys and Girls Club (BGC) Okanagan location in ki?lawna? (Kelowna), part of an initiative being spearheaded by the Syilx Language House. S?imla?x? Michele Johnson, the executive director of the Syilx Language House, said she reached out to BCG Okanagan more than a year ago to ask if they were interested in nsyilxc?n signs outside of their 12 main locations. Johnson also organized a beginners nsyilxcen language course for early childhood educators who are working with BGC. Johnson said that she feels really good to see the sign planted in the ground, noting that the Syilx Language House is “spreading the language as far and wide as we can.”
