dc.description.abstract This study investigates the potential of using Secwepemc traditional stories to develop Secwepemc language teaching and learning skills while incorporating the teaching of Secwepemc history and values with immersion students. Traditional Secwepemc stories and relevant literature were analyzed, explored, and reviewed to support the development of second language storytelling pedagogy for the immersion classroom. Archibald’s book, Storywork, and Chief Atahm School’s Secwepemc principles grounded this research in Indigenous methods that both respected and reflected the theme of storytelling. In this analysis, Secwepemc stories are shown to provide an excellent foundation from which language curricula can be developed. The study’s findings highlight the essential elements of Secwepemc storytelling as well as strategies for connecting students to stories, in the hopes of strengthening Secwepemc language curricula. en_US
