Indigenous languages are the focus of this summer’s main exhibit at the Penticton Museum & Archives.
Our Living Languages, First Peoples’ Voices in British Columbia runs now through Sept. 30.
“This exhibit tells the story of how the Indigenous peoples of British Columbia are striving to ensure the survival of their languages and culture. British Columbia is home to 34 unique indigenous languages, representing 60% of the total number of First Peoples languages spoken in Canada,” the museum said in a press release.
