Awi’nakola, which means ‘we are one with the land and sea’, combines in-class instruction with land-based cultural learning. Through the Awi’nakola program, instructors draw on Kwak’wala and Kwakwaka’wakw ways of knowing and being to inform academic learning. The classes are structured to focus on student strengths and the language to nourish their spirit and work at their level. It is a journey together as we explore land-based and culturally infused learning to meet the needs of our students and help them succeed.


Students will take classes in both English and Math (individual levels to be determined). Students will also learn basic conversation, structure and pronunciation of Kwak’wala (KWA-096). The land-based activities will vary and will include seasonal cultural activities, cedar weaving, traditional foods and medicine gathering, and visits to local communities. We incorporate a range of activities and experiences, with a focus on holistic learning and interests of the students.


Upon completion, students will receive a statement of completion as well as Adult Basic Education course credits.
