A little love for Valentine’s Day (y-dialect)

Three choices of Valentine’s greeting from Solomon Ratt:

  • miyo-sâkihitowin-kîsikanisik: Happy love day.
  • miyo-mitêhi-kîsikanisik – happy heart day
  • miyo-wîcimosiwi-kîsikanisik – happy sweetheart day.

From http://www.nehiyawewin.com/ (complete with audio and a cute kohkom!)
(In standard spelling, we would write kîcimos, to show the long vowel!)

And in lots of other languages. I didn’t see Cree, but the videos are awfully sweet.
