Our goal is to increase the rate at which students learn Seneca language; produce proficient Seneca speakers by 2020.
The Seneca Nation is losing fluent Seneca speakers at an alarming rate. Changes in our program are necessary to improve the effectiveness of what we offer to our community through on-territory public school services.
Under the current structure, elementary students received a yearly average of 20 hours of
language instruction in the public schools. Participation in the After School Language Nest will provide an additional 240 hours of instruction during the school year.
If you have a student in grades 3rd - 6th, please see attached for more information and the application process.
