Louise Loon Carves a Goose – and Goes Viral!

Cree Literacy is so much more than learning to read!

In this video, shared by Cree Radio CBC, (now with over 7,000 views), Louise Loon from the east coast of James Bay demonstrates – with narration in her Eyou dialect of Cree – how to carve a roast goose.

Many northern Cree people celebrate the return of the geese at this time of year with a week long hunt. In the days before commercial food, we can only imagine the joy of the return of fresh meat after a long, hard winter.

I wonder if Art Napoleon knows any northern kohkoms who could give us a demonstration in one of the Western dialects!
