A huge thank-you goes out to all the media representatives who have expressed interest in the Little Cree Books project, and who have enthusiastically shared our story. The success of the project, as well as the revitalization of heritage languages in general, depends on the individual investments and commitments people make to spreading, teaching, and using these languages. We appreciate your efforts in helping to generate interest in language preservation. kinanâskomitinân – We are thankful for you all.

Edmonton group Little Cree Books provides free online resources to help students learn Cree (Article by Doug Johnson, Edmonton Examiner, April 9, 2014)


It is very difficult to find good basic Cree language books directed towards young elementary students. We have downloaded the two Cree e-books for our students at Sunchild First Nation School. The books will be laminated, coil-bound, and presented to our kindergarten class as well as our K-6 Cree teacher. Thank you for providing such a valuable learning resource free of charge.
