Nehiyawetan means "Let's speak Cree". This dynamic six 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, ages 5 to 7, 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.
The children in the series represent the many faces of Aboriginal children who live in urban environments and want to know their language and culture and see them reflected in their lives.
