As little as 150 years ago, Gaelic was the native language of our ancestors. As of the early 1900's it was the third most spoken language in Canada. It is a beautiful and melodic language, and despite setbacks, Scottish Gaelic is enjoying a resurgence.

The Scottish Government has reintroduced Gaelic into the educational system, as has Nova Scotia. A new Gaelic school is being built in Fort William, the heart of ancient Cameron territory. Gaelic course participation is mushrooming all over North America and Scotland, particularly due to the expansion of on line resources.

The Clan Cameron Ontario Piper featured a Gaelic Corner which is a preliminary introduction to the language. The Gaelic on the Net page gives links to on line resources for those who want to learn more about our language.
