The latest language preservation publication from Patricia Ningewance Nadeau’s Mazinaate Inc will soon be a must-have all across the prairies. I was proud to pick up mine straight from the publisher last night.
Pocket Plains Cree for Kids and Parents: A Phrasebook for Nearly All Occasions, is full of useful phrases and vocabulary for parents and children talking, learning, feeling and playing together at home, on the land, at the powwow, or out in the big wide world. Filled with Plains Cree content provided by Solomon Ratt, you know it’s gonna be great!
Not yet listed on the Mazinaate website, the book sells for $20 plus postage.

This new title is modelled closely after the popular Pocket Ojibwe for Kids and Parents, written by Winnipeg’s Trevor Greyeyes and Maeengan Linklater, and translated into Ojibwe by Patricia Ningewance Nadeau.
(Even more great news from Pat: The adult version Pocket Cree translated by Dorothy Thunder will be coming out by Christmas. Watch for it!)
