I Love to Read Month: Westgrove School, Winnipeg

We love to read, too; especially in Cree! Thank you Westgrove School for inviting us to come and read Monique Grey Smith and Julie Flett’s My Heart Fills with Happiness in English and in Swampy Cree, and thank you all for being such great listeners. êkosâni! 

(The book is published bilingually in English and Plains Cree, but Ken Paupanekis easily adapted the SRO spelling to Swampy Cree (n-dialect), his first language.)

We also loved hearing Westgrove kids sing, so we’ve added some more songs to our collection for all of you to try. (Photos above are posted here with permission).
