Naskapi Stories and Legends

A beautiful new piece of work from the northeastern stretch of the Cree dialect continuum made its way to print earlier this year. It’s difficult to describe how much work – and love – goes into a project like this. Heartfelt congratulations to everyone involved: elder John Peastitute, Marguerite MacKenzie, Julie Brittain, Bill and Norma Jean Jancewicz (who have been devoted to that community for years), and to their daughter Elizabeth for the beautiful illustrations. Congratulations to the Naskapi Development Corporation for their role in bringing out their third book of this kind: the Cree Literacy Network looks forward to the day they can match your record!

The book is available from
