It's Friday morning, and while much of Yukon is starting work, a group of preschoolers in the village of Carcross is playing bingo.

It's part of the daily "language nest" at the Haa Yatx'i Hidi early childhood education centre at Carcross/Tagish First Nation. Launched in 2013, the program is designed to introduce local kids to the Tlingit language.
