hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓ Language Guide

We have prepared some guidelines and sound bites, recorded by Chief Ed Hall, to help you use the correct spelling and pronunciation for some commonly used hən̓q̓əmin̓em names and words such as kʷikʷəƛ̓əm (Kwikwetlem) and səmiq̓ʷəʔelə (Riverview). By using our traditional spellings and pronunciation, you are showing respect to the kʷikʷəƛ̓əm First Nation and people.
