Covid-19 Info in Cree and English from Simon Bird (th-dialect)

Thanks to Simon Bird (#creesimonsays) for preparing this video aimed at fluent speakers, but including good English content as well. As a former chief, Simon has direct information from Lac La Ronge Indian Band (LLRIB) emergency response team. As a born teacher, he presents it compellingly, and with a bit of laughter.

[Auntie Helen is here with us in isolation. She’s making 10 pahkwêsikanak right now so she can measure her social distancing!]

Stay tuned right to the end for bonus material: How to use rat root and make cedar tea!
