solidare ensemble SENIORS

The first two episodes of We’re All in This Together were filmed in the last week of November and will soon be on-line at ELAN’s new YouTube channel. The opening episode is about baking holiday cookies and the second episode is a Holiday Concert featuring Susie Arioli, Dawn Tyler Watson, Jennifer Gasoi and virtuoso Celtic trio Solstice.

ELAN, in collaboration with Seniors Action Quebec, will produce new episodes all winter and spring. If you know seniors looking for entertaining, community-building activities, send them to us here and we’ll add them to our upcoming YouTube channel.

ELAN is an official minority language organization within a country that recognizes two languages as official. ELAN is located in Tiohtiak:ke, the original name for Montreal in Kanien’kéha, the language of the Mohawk—also known as Mooniyang, which is the Anishinaabeg name given to the city by the Algonquin. While we are based in this city, our projects have also taken place in many regions across Quebec.

We acknowledge the colonial origin of English and French in Canada, and recognize that both languages benefit from official status throughout the land. The province that we know as Quebec is an amalgamation of the traditional territories of the Innu and Inuit nations, Algonquian nations, as well as the Mohawk nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. Kanien’kéha and Anishinaabeg are but two of the original languages of this province; Atikamekw, Cree, Inuktitut, and Innu-aimun are also among the many Indigenous languages spoken across Quebec as majority languages, all well before French and English.

ELAN acknowledges the important work being done by First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples to revive the traditional languages of these territories, and their advocacy for the official status of Indigenous languages.
