First Voices: Episode 3
Thursday is National Aboriginal Day, and this week, Daybreak has been taking a look at efforts to keep aboriginal languages alive.
Today, we head to the Marron Valley, near Penticton where Daybreak's Adrian Nieoczym recently visited with a First Nations family.
The Bent family is teaching their young children both English and Nsyilxcen, showing them the aboriginal language is not just for ceremony, but for all occasions, including the dinner table.
