The Lord’s Prayer (Dolores Sand, y-dialect)

This traditional Christian prayer is given here to answer a request made in the  #CreeSimonSays FaceBook Group. The audio recording was provided by Dolores Greyeyes Sand, who learned this translation at the Church of St Joseph, in John D’Or Prairie Alberta, and uses it daily.

nohtāwīnān kihci-kīsikohk kâ-ayāyan

pitanē ē-ohcihcipayik kitipēyicikēwin,
