Kji-keptin Alexander Denny L’nui’sultimkeweyo’kuom (KADL), the Mi’kmaw Language Lab located at Unama’ki College, is the centre of Mi’kmaw language education at CBU. It is named after Kji-keptin Alexander Denny from Eskasoni First Nation, a man with great vision and determination who believed that the Mi’kmaw language was key to his nation’s prosperity.

Historically, during the academic terms and during the summer, the Mi’kmaq Language Lab hires Indigenous students on grants giving the students both jobs and research experience.
