Cree

Many Indigenous languages are disappearing due to colonialism, residential schools, backward government policy, and now there are fewer and fewer fluent speakers.

The Pacific Association of First Nations Women is participating in a Cree and Ojibway Language Project.   Several elders, who are fluent in their language, have been brought on as teachers.  This program is open to Indigenous people who have Cree or Ojibway background.  Families with children are invited to participate.

There are several steps in the program:

Comments from the Introduction Classes:
I really loved the connection the class created and the opportunity the class gave to hear stories, sing songs and learn the language.  I really appreciate that I can now introduce myself in my mother’s language.

I had a great time listening to everyones stories and all learning together.

We are grateful for the ongoing support from the First People’s Cultural Council.
