tânisi Song: Brian MacDonald

In this favourite kids’ song by Brian MacDonald, every line is repeated as an echo, except the bridge, which is sung entirely in Cree. It’s fun to place somebody outside the door, and have them knock. Have somebody answer the door to begin acting out the greetings.

*dialect note: For n-dialect, change the bold y to n;
for th-dialect change the bold y to th, and change all of the ê sounds to î.
