A Simple Lullaby: Belinda Vandenbroeck (n- and y-dialects, audio)

A genuine Cree lullaby from a genuine kôhkom, sung very gently to the tune of “Skip to my Lou.” Thank you to Belinda Vandenbroeck – a Winnipeg maskêkôskwêw! This one is perfect for real babies, or for little ones loving their baby dolls.

I love you a lot!
