Tłı̨chǫ Yatıì has been passed from generation to generation and has been used to express any idea imaginable. This long-time tradition continues everyday, spoken in homes, camping, hunting, at fish camp, at health centres, in church, on the playing field, at the rink, in the store, on the radio and television.
Tłı̨chǫ Yatıì is also used in written form. This newer tradition has grown in schools, in government, in dictionaries, and in Bible translations. As more people think that they would like to read and write in Tłı̨chǫ Yatıì there is more need for instruction in literacy. This book is aimed at people who would like to develop their skills in reading and writing in the Tłı̨chǫ language
