Roseanne (Tremblay) Clark
Dernière mise à jour : 15 janv.
Roseanne (Tremblay) Clark is on the curriculum committee for Kehkimin. She grew up speaking only Wolastoqey Latuwewakon and that was the dominant language heard in the community at that time. Her parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles gave her the gift of Wolastoqey latuwewakon. Her language was discouraged by the Tobique Indian Day School and in the nearby Provincial Schools. In spite of these efforts to erase her language, she managed to retain much of her language ability and subsequently became very involved in its revitalization.
Roseanne attended university in Fredericton where she obtained her BSW and BEd. She also completed a “Wolastoqey Language Immersion Program.” Being a licenced teacher in NB led to many years of working with her language in both Provincial and Band-operated schools. Over the years she was involved in many curriculum development projects including translation and video productions. Roseanne would like to thank all the people along the way in her life-long language journey. She especially wants to thank Henrietta Black, who’s expertise has proven invaluable to Roseanne’s involvement with language revitalization.
