Language Project

The language of the Snuneymuxw is Island Hul'q'umin'um', a living language that expresses our worldview and way of life. Our language connects us to the wisdom and knowledge of our ancestors and infuses our People with valuable insights and understanding.

Our Hul'q'umin'um' language dictionary and resources like the Vocies of Snuneymuxw project are among the ways we continue education in our language.

“Voices of the Snuneymuxw First Nation” is a project that brings together some information about Island Hul'q'umin'um' and Snuneymuxw culture, including recordings of Elders.  The project site can be located at:
