Abstract: 

This project discusses kinship terms in Hul’q’umi’num’, a Coast Salish language of British Columbia. The goal of the project is to explain kinship terms in a fashion that is accessible to language learners so that future generations will be aware of the different meanings for vocabulary referring to immediate family, extended family, and in-laws. Information gathered for this project comes from elders within our community. I use stories to help illustrate how to use kinship terms in our Hul’q’umi’num’ language.
