Even though sometimes
The moon is not visible
She is always there;
The same with our language.
Thanks, Sol, for sharing this wonderful image and thought in honour of this National Indigenous Languages Day (though every day is Indigenous Languages Day here!)
To broaden the picture even further, here’s a beautiful mapping project from Canadian Geographic: https://canadiangeographic.ca/articles/mapping-indigenous-languages-in-canada
You can also here to look up and celebrate your own Cree-speaking community by name: Cree names for Cree communities.
