Part of Nehiyawetan: Let's Speak Cree (Series 1 -- 6 parts).

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.

 

Grace, Kai, Kiyano and their teacher Josephine are off to Stanley Park in search of different animals and practice the Cree words for their various furry friends. Kai shares a story about his Atim ("dog" in Cree), and Cheryl L'Hirondelle drums and sings about animals with the children.
