Introduction to Mi’Kmaw Language

The Mi’Kmaw language is important to me and my culture. While I’m not fluent, I have taken classes at First Light – St. John’s Friendship Centre. I also volunteer as A community Advocate with First Voice Urban Indigenous Coalition. For interest, below are some common Mi’Kmaw words.

Kwe’ – Hello
Taluisin? – What is your name?
Wernu’kwalsi l’nui’si – I’m trying to speak mi’kmaq
