    Hi there,

    I am looking for course packages for instructors for introductory, intermediate and advanced Cree language. Do you carry any type of course package for instructors/students? I am looking for instructional material/guide, CDs, workbooks, posters, etc.

    Thank you kindly,

      You are welcome to download the songs from this website. You could also go to Youtube, and search for Cree songs there. I’m always surprised at the amount of new stuff I find when I visit there!
      You could start with this link: Youtube: Cree Songs

      Thanks for your query. Solomon Ratt suggests the following:
      iyiniw simâkanisihkânak mâmawinitowin kânata ohci – – ᐃᔨᓂᐤ ᓯᒫᑲᓂᓯᐦᑳᓇᐠ ᒫᒪᐃᐧᓂᑐᐃᐧᐣ ᑳᓇᑕ ᐅᐦᒋ
      Literally: Indigenous soldiers’ group, from Canada (you can omit the from Canada part where appropriate)
      According to Sol, there really aren’t commonly used forms that distinguish veterans from currently serving members. And the words First Nations, Indigenous and Aboriginal are all covered with the same Cree word, iyiniw.

    Hi, I will shortly be starting a job where I will be typing hand-written notes in Cree, written in Cree syllabics. I need to find out about any computer program that I can use for this. It’s a book, so the little online Roman orthography/syllabic converters, where they do only a few words at a time, aren’t good enough. Do you know of a program I can use? I’d also need to know what computer requirements I need in order to run such a program on it. I’d appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you.

    Hi again,

    I am working my way through Solomon Ratt’s Beginning Cree textbook. It is such a great text.

    Are there any audio files and pronunciation drills for this textbook? Or if not for this book specifically, some pronunciation drills elsewhere for the same dialect?

    I’ve been looking for a tutor who can help me learn Cree, or Oji-Cree in Winnipeg. My schedule doesn’t allow me to plan for regular courses and classes. I have contacted Indigenous Languages of Manitoba, but they have not been able to connect me with somebody willing/able to tutor me. I’d appreciate any assistance. Thanks!
