Barry Ahenakew: Place Names of the nêhiyawak

Coming Soon!
(apologies for this premature post!) 

The stories related in these videos represent the view of the Plains Cree people of their own history and place within North America.  We are grateful to Elder Barry Ahenakew for his permission to share them. 

The videos, maps, and text transcriptions that make up this project all come from a presentation in three parts made by Barry Ahenakew of Ahtahkakoop Cree Nation (Treaty 6, Saskatchewan). Ahenakew spoke at “Our Land / Our Cultures: Saskatchewan Geospatial Conference” hosted by First Nations University of Canada, Saskatchewan Aboriginal Land Technicians and Firelight Group on March 9-10, 2021. He has continued to share generously from his vast wealth of traditional knowledge. Click on section heads to reveal additional details.
