Europe and North America | Canada | Eskasoni | Eskasoni Billboard
The Community of Eskasoni is located in Nova Scotia, Canada and is the Largest Mi’kmaq Reserve in Canada. The Chief of Eskasoni also covers the language portfolio of the First Nations communities in Nova Scotia and is willing to endorse the 2019 International year of indigenous Languages. He wants to display the IYIL2019 logo on our community billboard. The main reasons as to why he wants to display this logo is to create awareness of how important this initiative is. We have noticed that our language is on the verge of extinction with only 30% speakers in our community.
