Reclaiming Domains

Reclaiming Dakwanje

-Labels for the kitchen area, and clothing-

Klukshu Dialect

taught by Paddy Jim

families must retrieve their rightful position as the first teachers of our languages. They must talk our languages every day, everywhere, with everyone, anywhere

 (Littlebear)

Why is using Dákwanjè in the home important?

The home is the main space for maintaining and reproducing Dákwanjè

  • It supports the transmission of Dákwanjè between parent and/or caregiver and child, otherwise known as intergenerational language transmission
  • It requires learning and using every day language for real-life situations
  • Children are more likely to be successful learning Dákwanjè in school if they have opportunities to use it in the home and community
  • Successful language-learning for children is supported by the involvement of parents and family members
  • It supports a strong First Nations identity for both children and adults
  • Language and culture are connected and research shows that families draw strength from their cultures
  • Regularly speaking Dákwanjè in your home will help making using Dákwanjè in other areas of your life normal
  • Bringing Dákwanjè into your home will help ensure that the next generation has access to the Dákwanjè language and culture – this will help break the cycle of trauma that has been caused by colonization and will allow for individual and community well-being

Reclaiming domains: Reclaiming domains is a tool for language revitalization which envisions the world as broken up into different places and activities. There are four classifications of language domains.

Reclaiming a location: home, work, car, fish camp

a relationship: mother, father, co-workers, spouse, children, grandchildren

a topic: greetings, weather, sports

an activity: dancing, singing, sewing, carving, cooking, bathing, swimming

As well there are over-arching domains that have sub-domains. For example, under the location domain, ‘home’ could be broken into smaller sub-domains. A sub-domain under the home could be the kitchen, and a sub-topic under the kitchen could be making toast. So reclaiming a ʼdomainʼ becomes a, multi-step process.

Learning a language in the home means inviting the mind of that language into one’s everyday life; it is a personal rather than academic undertaking ( Carson Viles)

 

Here is a document you can print out and put around your kitchen area:
