The Language House - Rotary Centre for the Arts - Presented - Sʔím̓laʔxʷ Michele Johnson PhD and Executive Director, lead activist and teacher of The Language House. Sʔím̓laʔxʷ provided an informative presentation on the work that is being done to preserve N̓syilxčn̓ and she demonstrated how her students were learning N̓syilxčn̓. Michele stood on the stage and walked the audience through a beautiful exercise of learning how to say words like Bird, Sun, and Brave. With each word she demonstrated physical postures, e.g. her arms flapped up and down as we spoke the word bird. The movements represented the words and repeating each word several times helped the audience learn the words. It was an amazing experience to be a part of.

Design 4 Accessibility's mission is to remove barriers for persons with disabilities. We all need access to:
Health, inclusion, and well-being.
Visitable Spaces, especially playgrounds,
Access to Nature, especially in our trails, parks, and public spaces
This mission needs your help - let's remove challenges together!
If you see barriers for persons with disabilities, let me know, write letters/emails to local governments, ask business owners to consider having accessibility audits of their businesses, and speak up in conversation. When you can, seek out and support persons with disabilities in their creative and business and outdoor ventures!
