Stay home: Learn Cree – 5. Dorothy Thunder Introduces herself

While we’re all in isolation, we’re trying to try to post one video a day from Sol and his fellow Cree teachers. Some from his existing teaching library – and some brand new. Like Sasquatch himself, Solomon Ratt has experience with self isolation. Who better to help out with online Cree lessons for remote learning?  

Today, Dorothy Thunder ê-wâpamâyâhk (we see her) in a FaceBook Live video. Listen as she introduces herself in Cree (then patiently explains in English). Her repetitions are particularly helpful for learners. 

Dorothy is from Little Pine in Saskatchewan. She speaks Cree as her first language, and is the principal Cree teacher at the University of Alberta, and she hangs out with all the coolest (Cree-teaching) kids. Look for more of Dorothy’s videos on FaceBook, in the group. Nehiyawewin ohpinetan.
