Eminent Speakers are the backbone of the Language Division. Our Eminent Speakers assist the Language Apprentice Program and Hoocak Academy through teaching the language, assisting curriculum development, and language preservation. Some of the eminent speakers are paired with a language apprentice to teach one on one, while others offer their own community classes. The Language Division would not exist without these extraordinary individuals. They are always available to answer your language learning questions, so make sure to say hi when you see them!
