Description

Woods Cree Stories - N¢ihithaw ¢acimowina is one of the titles in First Nations Language Readers 4 from the University of Regina Press. So often, it is through humour that the big lessons in life are learned|about responsibility, honour, hard work, and respect. Cree people are known for their wit, so the tales in Woods Cree Stories are filled with humour. The book includes nine stories including Boys Get Lost, Long Ago Christmas, Grandmother's Bay, Shaking-Spear Wanders About, Shaking-Spear and the Bear, Buffalo Wings, Wisahkicahk and the Startlers, Foolishness, and Animals Become Friends, and a Woods Cree-English glossary. All the stories are presented in Cree syllabics, standard roman orthography, and English translation and can be enjoyed by those new to the language and more advanced learners. Solomon Ratt, a Woods Cree speaker and educator from Stanley Mission, Saskatchewan, is an associate professor in the Department of Indigenous Languages, Arts and Cultures at the First Nations University of Canada.
