Language-immersion programs have been recognized as providing key benefits to Native communities by boosting educational achievement and student retention rates. They also support community identity, Native systems of kinship, and management of community, cultural and natural resources.

In the first two years alone of the Native Language Immersion Initiative, First Nations provided 25 grants totaling more than $2.1 million to support Native language programs. This report shares the initial results of this vital initiative with our stories of
strength, resistance, resiliency, and hope.
