Join us in Call to Action #14 which acknowledges “Aboriginal languages are fundamental and a valued element of Canadian culture and society, and there is an urgency to preserve them.”

We invite all conference delegates to learn basic conversational Anishnaabemowin (Ojibway) and Nehiyawewin (Cree – in this case Swampy Cree). We will post as often as we can. Please check back, listen, practice, like and share! Miigwetch! Kinanaskomitin!
