Nisga’a Education is a way to learn and live the principles of life which entails Sayt-K’iĺim Goot, Nisga’a Ayuuk and the Yuuhlimk'askw system. Living Sayt-K’iĺim-Goot creates a secure foundation that respects a balance between Nisga’a language and wisdom rooted in the land, and the languages and wisdom of other peoples. Education is a way to learn and live Nisga'a Ayuuk. The Yuuhlimk'askw system guides how to live. Nisga'a Education begins at birth.
