Kun8seeh is aWôpanaô̂t8âôk teaching and learning website. The primary objective for the website is to increase language access to all Wôpanâak language learners through the use online learning materials that accompany audio and visual material. Kun8seeh provides more opportunities for students to engage in language learning based on a student's availability, geographical location, and learning style. Currently, most community language access requires a student to live in close proximity to reservation lands and requires that they attend a class in person. Most classes offered meet once a week for 1-2 hours, depending on the availability of the instructor, thus making immersion environments sparse and increases in speaking fluency a great challenge. Kun8seeh is the first online learning opportunity in the Wôpanâak community with lesson plans, games, and books that students can see, hear, and access from any device that can access the internet.
