“What's so exciting is we've found the problem to learning Tahltan. It's encoded with patterns. We figured this out, so now we can teach it!”
- Oscar Dennis, Tahltan Language Revitalization Coordinator in Iskut
Employment is now the strongest it has been in years, due to the construction boom from the Altagas run-of-river hydro projects, the Northwest Transmission Line, and the initial clearing phase of the Red Chris mine. Your Band Council and I are now working hard on an employment and training strategy to ensure that many of these construction jobs become long-term operational jobs for our people and youth for the decades to come.
Our arena construction will be complete this year with artificial ice. Plans are underway to upgrade the Headstart playground. This will include putting in a bike path for the little ones and fencing in the green area. The Iskut Band and Tahltan Band are working together on managing the nursing station at Telegraph Creek. The Iskut Valley Health program will be undergoing a full evaluation in preparation for accreditation.
Tahltans, young and old, will soon have many opportunities to learn our native language. The Tahltan and Iskut bands and the Tahltan Central Council are pushing to create a government department in charge of revitalizing the Tahltan language.
