The Curriculum Development team is a developing area which focuses on creating accessible resources for our people. We have some English resources, bilingual resources, and Squamish only resources.

Visit our Facebook page and YouTube channel where we share videos created by our language teachers. As our language continues to grow, so will our resources. If you have any inquiries, please email leateeqwhia@squamish.net.
