awas! ᐊᐘᐢ
“Go away!”

Solomon Ratt models the latest fashion for social isolation during Coronavirus – received from his FaceBook friend Grace Nihithaw Iskwew. (Note that it also matches his welcome mat). As you can tell from the photo, he’s rather proud! (Scroll down for further info about the t-shirt.) 

ayapik, pêyahtik!
“Stay home, be safe (everyone)!”

  • awas should be the same for all dialects. maskwâtisik, too. The Y in kahkiyaw changes to th or n for those dialects.

Grace’s t-shirts are available via her FaceBook group: Grace’s CREEations:
