National Aboriginal History Month Day Eight: pimotâtowin

Urban 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 Eight, the word is Archery:

Thanks to “That Conrad Guy, Eh” for this fabulous photo of Last years Canadian Gold medal Archery champ Calvin Bird from Montreal Lake Cree Nation – and wahwâ! Congratulations, Calvin Bird!


You might also enjoy the following 2014 APTN video that showcases the place archery takes in the North American Indigenous Games. Click on the photo to watch the video!
