Mshkogaabwid Kwe opens up about moments that make it difficult, being isolated as Second Language learning parents, and how the pandemic has changed dynamics of this journey, and what it is the drives her and her family to keep going. Listen in if you’d like to hear her take on her families’ journey to revitalize the language and preserve it. **** I also want to apologize to those I may have offended when I referred to “Moana goes on in Hawaiian” I know I was really referring to Te reo Maori language. It was not an ignorance thing but a slip of the tongue being nervous. I apologize again as I am very aware these languages are not the same. Both languages and their many dialects and sub dialects are so beautiful and unique. I want to acknowledge this. **** Follow Enweying on Instagram: @oursound.enweying

In this episode, we talk about why children should learn grammar...kind of. We give our reasons in how and why children and adults need to learn the grammatical aspects of the language.
