Imelda Perley is watching her language die. There are only about 100 people in New Brunswick (in Tobique, Kingsclear, Oromocto and Woodstock) who speak Maliseet as their mother tongue, and many of them are elders. ...Researchers at the UNB Fredericton are ... recording conversations with Maliseet speakers. "This generation isn't interested. ... But there may be a generation of speakers coming, and this project is going to ensure that the materials, the stories and the written histories are waiting for them."

Prof. Perley, of the Mi'kmaq/Maliseet Institute, began recording interviews in 1993, but she was dismayed at how quickly the elders were dying. "I noticed that funerals were when you would hear it the most. I knew that ... I had to develop more opportunities for us to gather and to speak our language. Ms. Perley has organized after school programs - teaching language, traditional dance, drum, songs and folklore - card games, bean suppers and she visits elders who are first-language-Maliseet speakers in Tobique to give them the opportunity to speak their mother tongue. "It's not a dying language.
