Why Indigenous Language Fluency:

Indigenous languages are an essential aspect of Indigenous peoples’ identity, culture, and history. Unfortunately, many Indigenous languages are at risk of being lost due to various reasons, including residential schools, forced assimilation, and cultural genocide. Language revitalization and preservation efforts are crucial to help Indigenous communities reclaim their language and cultural heritage.

Indigenous language fluency can also lead to various personal and professional benefits. For instance, it can provide individuals with a deeper understanding of Indigenous cultures and histories, facilitate meaningful cross-cultural communication, and enhance employment opportunities in various sectors, including education, healthcare, and social services.


VIU offers various programs, including certificate programs and courses, that have different eligibility criteria. For instance, the Certificate program requires applicants to have a basic understanding of the language they wish to study. Applicants must also provide evidence of their Indigenous ancestry or a strong connection to an Indigenous community.

VIU offers non-credit Indigenous Language courses to all individuals interested in learning, regardless of eligibility requirements or background.
