New app from First Nations Language Centre preserves Shuswap legend
From CBC News:
An epic First Nations legend that dates back thousands of years in the Kamloops area is getting some new life. The story of "Tlli7sa" connects over a dozen First Nations communities.
It's now being preserved digitally - like a picture book with graphics - thanks to a new mobile app. It's official launches this weekend at the Secwepemc Cultural Gathering.
Marianne Ignace (SFU Linguistics) is behind the project. She's the director of the First Nations Language Centre at Simon Fraser University. She's been working with the Skeetchestn Indian Band.
