9 Official Languages of the Northwest Territories

My video is a stop motion animation describing the official languages of the Northwest Territories.




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

I learned that each of the languages has a very interesting history. They all have quite the story to tell.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

Although each of the 9 individual languages are quite different, when looked at all together they make something pretty remarkable.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

I live in a city with tons of people who speak mainly one language. We have more speakers of one language than they do in all of theirs combined.
