Nehiyawetan means "Let's speak Cree". This dynamic thirteen part series combines live action and animation in an innovative approach to making the Cree language accessible to young children. It follows a group of Aboriginal children as they learn to speak Cree in the city. The approach taken reinforces learning through play, music, adventure and storytelling. Nehiyawetan: Let’s Speak Cree promotes language retention, offers a Cree perspective of the world and encourages smart choices about living in the city.
Welcome to year three of Tansi! Nehiyawetan! Kai, Kayla, and Auntie Josephine hope you remember your words from last season. Don’t worry if you are a little rusty, because our games, adventures and sing-alongs will help you remember and get ready for the new season of learning Cree.
