Rock Around the Clock!

1. How fast can you count in Cree?
2. What numbers are missing from the quick count up to twelve?

“Rock Around the Clock” is from Dolores Sand’s 2004 hit CD Classics in Cree. Her translation of “All Shook Up” from the same CD was awarded a Gold Record from Winnipeg’s NCR Radio Station in 2005. Dolores is a speaker and teacher of Plains Cree, a founding member of the Cree Literacy Network, a band counsellor at Muskeg Lake Cree Nation, and eldest daughter of the late Freda Ahenakew.
