Edmonton Public Library’s Cree Classes (2019)

A great new year’s story from the Edmonton Journal: ‘A sense of pride’: Edmontonians sign up for Cree language classes (by Emma Graney)

“Every time you learn a word and incorporate it into your everyday vernacular, it’s a victory. It’s a victory because language, culture, traditions — all of these things were taken away from Indigenous people, so every time you even learn one (word), you’re making your way back to that place.”
