Language and Culture

About Us

Our Sekani cultural identity is who we are; it is what gives us knowledge of our place in the world, where we stand with nature, the elements, and animals, and it is what makes our surroundings our home. It is our identity. Language & Culture sustains and invests in the rebuilding and practicing of culture, ceremony, and language for our community and for future generations. We ensure that every Tsay Keh member has access to culture, language learning, history, and cultural ceremony.
