This printable poster (use button at bottom of post to download) displays numbers 1 – 10 in Cree, in both the y-dialect spoken in Alberta and southern Saskatchewan, also known as nêhiyawêwin or Plains Cree, and in the n-dialect also known as Swampy Cree or nêhinawêwin, spoken in Manitoba and the Saskatchewan communities of Cumberland House and Shoal Lake.
The lovely illustration (used with permission) is by Julie Flett adapted from her book We All Count. Arden Ogg of the Cree Literacy Network, who wrote the preface for We All Count, generously lent her time to copyedit this poster. Thanks, Arden!
The poster is 11 x 17 inches, so if your printer can print it on a 12 x 18 sheet of paper, that's perfect. Otherwise, print on a standard tabloid sheet and "shrink to fit".
The new Kanata podcast by Indian & Cowboy media has an episode with language rights activist Khelsilem, who teaches a Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) immersion program at SFU. He talks about the purpose of (non-immersion) French classes that are taught in Canada being to create awareness and appreciation for the "dual language identity of Canada" rather than to create speakers. With this in mind, small language modules and tools like this can't replace immersion programs and practicing speaking at home. As Khelsilem points out later, language programs in schools can help to bring awareness of the territory students are studying in, as well as the history of the territory. Hear more of his thoughts at the link.
