The First Nations Language program is still a strong program at the Woodland Cultural Centre. This program is dedicated to rationalizing, revitalizing and maintaining First Nations Languages, locally, regionally and nationally in the capacity of advisory services and best practices.

After 28 years, the Language Department is very much pleased with the ‘social movement’ and First Nations interests in raising the bar from offering mere NSL Program Delivery mode to a First Nations Bilingualism mode in a Language Immersion setting. It is in the latter mode, that the First Nations communities are coming to realize the potential and value of the intellect, wisdom and genius of their original First Nations Civilizations in Ontario. And more importantly, First Nations are now beginning to articulate the value and the fact that all sectors, partners and levels of governments should no longer be afraid or ashamed of the potential of First Nations Bilingualism in the 21st century.
