In the Beginning (Bible Story): Dolores Sand (y-dialect)

Dolores Sand (aka “The Creeture”) prepared this video reading (and others) to share through the FaceBook group of Muskoday First Nation Community School

This video presents a children’s version of the Bible’s Creation Story. The book, “In the Beginning,” is one of a thirty-volume set of Bible stories – all in Plains Cree – published by the Canadian Bible Society (and available there for purchase). The stories were translated into Cree by Dolores and Gayle Weenie. 

The books are only available as a boxed set (at $100, that works out to under $3.50 per volume). What the website doesn’t mention is that each purchase includes access to all thirty books in e-reader format, and the e-reader copy includes professionally recorded audio featuring Dolores herself. (Find the series’ Christmas story here with a demo of the e-reader format: Jesus is Born: Dolores Sand (y-dialect))
