Stay home: Learn Cree -28. Days of the Week

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, we focus on days of the week, first, simply reading and reciting them in y- or th-dialect (as you prefer), and then in another of Sol’s (y-dialect) teaching video that uses the days of the week to illustrate daily activities and telling time.
