Charlie Venne: omosōma

Charlie Venne with his grandfather and namesake, Charlie Ross, who passed away in December 2017.

Charlie Venne is building a great collection of stories about his grandfather (omosōma) on his First Nations Stories blog (

Along with English-language story-telling, Charlie also embeds audio recordings of key phrases and ideas in Cree, for learners to listen and copy.

I pulled up the whole collection by entering “mosōm” stories into the search bar: a real treat to start the new year! Thank you to both Charlies for sharing with all of us!
