|Language rights of linguistic minority students in Canada, including the aboriginal, immigrant, and refugee students
|Aboriginal peoples in Canada have the constitutional right to educate their children in their Indigenous languages (Leitch, 2005). However, many Aboriginal children still seem to find it difficult to learn their ancestral languages at public schools. It happens, in part, because mother tongue medium instruction or ancestral language learning might seldom be offered in all levels in the K-12 educational setting. This paper aims to address the Aboriginal language rights violation within the historical, sociopolitical, and educational context. Challenges facing the learners of Aboriginal languages in the K-12 educational contexts are also discussed, followed by the conclusion and discussion.
