Nēhiyawēwin awāsi-masinahikanis : a little plains Cree book for children

  • Contributor: Felix, Allen J.; Ballantyne, Elmer

    Following the themes of the Saskatchewan Curriculum Guide for Kindergarten to Grade 12 on Aboriginal Languages, the content focuses on terms familiar to the First Nations Cree people of Saskatchewan. The enhanced e-book edition, available separately, gives learners an opportunity to see and hear the text spoken by a Plains Cree Elder. This book should also be supplemented by total physical response (TPR) methods, in addition to teaching materials such as songs, games, and flash cards. Our hope is to encourage a basic understanding of the language so that learners are able to converse with Plains Cree speakers. The best path to fluency in the Plains Cree language is immersion, but learning one word at a time is a good place to start!
