Amiskwacîwâskahikan

amiskwacîwâskahikan (ᐊᒥᐢᑿᒌᐚᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ), meaning “beaver hills house,” is the nehiyawewin itwewin (Cree word) for Edmonton.

For about six years (2013-2019), Little Cree Books hosted a video of Little Bear helping people pronounce amiskwacîwâskahikan, while Baby Eagle was featured in a video that showed how syllabics represent the letters we are familiar with in English. Unfortunately, Adobe has discontinued support for Adobe Flash, and the videos that used to be available on this page no longer work. Our technological savviness has reached its limits, and this is the end of the videos. We hope you enjoyed them while they were available.
