KORI hosted 6 Ojibwe & Ojicree language workshops which were broadcast via videoconference to other Keewaytinook Okimakanak locations. Beginners and experts alike, staff were invited over lunch hour to the boardrooms to attend 6 fun videoconference language workshops. These workshops took place January 13 - 29 on Tuesdays and Thursdays of every week from 12pm cst - 1pm cst. Laura James who is a member of Mcdowell Lake First Nation was the instructor for these workshops along with Emma Oskineegish a member of Nibinamik who recited legends in Ojibwe.  These workshops focused on introduction to conversation, numbers, commands and syllabics.  Sites in Sioux Lookout and Balmertown were connected with sites and staff fully participating and interacting with one another. KORI would like to thank Laura James and Emma Oskineegish for their time and valuable instructions.
