Stay home: Learn Cree 25. More Verbs

While we’re all in isolation, we’re going to try to post one video a day from Sol’s existing teaching library, and the teaching libraries of some of his friends. Like Sasquatch himself, Solomon Ratt has experience with self isolation. Who better to help out with online Cree lessons for remote learning?  

Today, a quick greeting from Solomon Ratt, followed by a more advanced lesson in verbs, including verbs as commands, as declarative sentences, sentences and even in future tense.  Use the click-to-read tool (alt-click or option-click) to look up each verb stem in the itwêwina online dictionary to see the verb in even more forms.
