In this project we are translating the work of beloved children's author Robert Munsch into interactive Hul'q'umi'num audio books. Hul'q'umi'num is the Coast Salish language of the First Nations that our school serves Stz'uminus First Nation, Penelakut Tribe, and Halalt First Nation.
We have completed our first book Andrew's Loose Tooth - Andew's Kwa’ulnus Yunus's and hope to translate additional books and to translate these works into other Fist Nations languages.
This site is being developed by Dan Norman and Alice Kedves of Chemainus Secondary as a method to freely distribute resources that support first nations languages and culture.

We would like to thank Florence James, Penelakut Elder, for the translation of the text and Danny Norris, Halalt Elder, for his reading and ongoing language support. Without their participation and kindness this work would not have been possible.
