Beaver Language

The teaching of our language is now a part of the curriculum at Rocky Lane School, a program we are proud to support. For others interested in learning some of the basics of the Beaver language (or Dane-zaa), Doig River First Nation developed an online learning tool hosted by the Virtual Museum of Canada. Other language resources are collected here. As with all our resources, these are provided for your reference, and are not necessarily endorsed by Beaver First Nation. The language tools may also reflect a different dialect than what is spoken here.
