It’s going around again and this time it is hitting the classroom as Holiday Season homework for children and youth.
 
The SPAM EMAIL warning readers that there are not 100 words for snow in a First Nations language is only anecdotal, unresearched,  and harmful.  SPAM EMAILS that tell you there ARE 100 words are just as bad. Don’t believe either one of them, but read the actual research to date at the link below.  You’ll be surprised.
 
Don’t let your kids be made fools by homework assignments or their friends’ SPAM emails.
 
Sincerely,
