Appendix B: Inuvik Case Study
There is a need to support Aboriginal language reading and writing skills. Seniors must be willing to be part of the solution for Aboriginal language recovery.
Ingamo Hall Friendship Centre and the Day Program at the hospital offer good opportunities for organized seniors gatherings. Gatherings could be organized with guest speakers to present interesting information and stimulate meaningful discussion. It is hoped that the hospital day program can work to give seniors a place to go.
Senior volunteers/role models should be recruited to help with service and program promotion to other seniors.
In a learning activity, seniors may be uncomfortable asking questions. Literacy providers/instructors should “check in with seniors daily/frequently.”
More seniors in teaching positions would attract more seniors. There are quite a few seniors with good speaking skills, who could be facilitators for seniors literacy.
Transportation to seniors literacy activities will improve attendance.
