Description

Powwow Counting in Cree is a 2013 publication for primary level students that introduce counting from one to ten in the Plains Cree language. Told in simple rhyming verse, this 24-page presentation features powwow imagery such as feathers, singers, dancers, the Eagle Staff, the Drum, Seven Teachings, and moccasins. Colour drawings by artist Melinda Josie reflect the cultural details of the contemporary powwow. Cree-Ojibway author Penny Thomas has captured the essence of simple counting from one to ten in the Cree language as well as the loving and caring nature of Cree families as they attend a powwow. A helpful pronunciation guide for the Cree numbers from one to ten is included making this picture book a culturally relevant arithmetic resource. Highly recommended
