Heritage University Language Center (HULC) teamed up with the Heritage University Early Learning Center to use a classroom that will focus on the Ichishkin language and culture. There are two teachers and we get some assistance with two fluent Yakama Elders (one man and one woman) who come help with passing on some of their language and teachings. The children hear language all throughout the day and they also sing some of our longhouse songs before every meal. They also love to sing, so we sing many different kinds of songs such as Pow-wow, Coastal, or another Native American style that is known. The goal is to keep these young children together and learning the language until they are ready for an Ichishkin Immersion Kindergarten class.
