Aboriginal Languages Content
The Northwest Territories is home to eleven official languages: Chipewyan, Cree, Tlicho, South Slavey, North Slavey, Gwich'in, Inuvialuktun, Inuinnaqtun, Inuktitut, English and French. The Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre strives to create Aboriginal language content for the Internet where ever possible.

Various publications have also been produced to highlight our collections in Aboriginal languages:

- Nahe Gondıé Goghánídle – Sharing our Stories (Dehcho)
- ‘De T’a Hoti Ts’eeda: We Live Securely from the Land (Dene)
To assist researchers, translators, language specialists, and the general public, a resource page has been assembled to assist with the correct implementation of Dene orthography and fonts.
