The Workshop

In partnership with the Department of Justice, the CURA project facilitated a second workshop to collect and develop criminal justice terminology in Innu-aimun.

Over 450 criminal court terms were reviewed and translated for the Sheshatshiu dialect of Innu-aimun; approximately 150 were translated for the Mushuau dialect. Translations of the remaining terms into Mushuau-aimun will be completed at a future workshop.



Participants included the following court interpreters, lawyers, CURA representatives, and others with experience in interpretation for the courts:

    • Anniette Bartmann (Court Interpreter, Labrador Legal Services)
