National Aboriginal History Month: Day One

CalendarUrban Native Magazine and Regina Aboriginal Professionals Association have launched a photograph challenge (for Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) in honour of National Aboriginal History Month. They’re using the Twitter hashtag #NAHM2015PhotoADay.

Here at the Cree Literacy Network, we’ve decided to play along, by gathering the images suggested – but (with help from Solomon Ratt) captioning them in Cree.

For Day One, the word is Beadwork:

mîkisihkahcikêwin

ᒦᑭᓯᐦᑲᐦᒋᑫᐏᐣ

This bearpaw medallion was beaded for Solomon by Rita Nîya.
